One of California's premiere paddle races, The Race the Lake of the Sky, is being postponed until 2017. Located in one of our Best Places to Paddle, it is an amazing opportunity to hang out with fellow paddlers, camp, and enjoy the great scenery of Lake Tahoe. Plus it is multi-craft, which you know we love.
Cali Paddler had plans to join the party this year, and may still make the trek. As Sasha Unruh from West Coast Paddle Sports is quoted as saying, they are "still doing the Saturday night race on June 25th. So lets all show up for that and take part in what could be the biggest little race in the country." Great advice Sasha. Stay tuned for updates in case we head that way still and make a party of it all.
Press Release from the race organizers
Dear Race the Lake of the Sky Friends and Families,
The building that has housed South Tahoe Standup Paddle since 2010 has been sold and the new owner is renovating the property. As you can imagine this has sent us scrambling to find a new location for our retail shop. The good news is that we are moving to 3135 Harrison Avenue, 2 blocks closer to El Dorado Beach.
The demands of moving and the tenant improvements required to establish business in our new location will not leave us enough time to produce Race the Lake of the Sky at the level of excellence it deserves. Therefore, 2016 will be a “Leap Year” for Race the Lake of the Sky. We look forward to producing the 5th annual event in 2017.
The South Tahoe SUP Series is scheduled to return for the sixth straight year on Saturday June 25th, July 30th, and August 27th. More details to come!
Thank you for your continued support,
Chris, Jared & Robin
