The second racing event of the SixPack SUP Race Series was a well-contested race. It was held on May 28, 2016, at the beautiful Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada. A bit of rain and the South East swell allowed for some great runs and wave trains, as the world’s best paddlers battled it with stellar performances.
Hosted by Coastline Surf Shop and SouthIsland SUP, the SixPack SUP Race Series#2 Qualicum offered races for kids, novices, and competitive paddlers. The beach saw a monumental turnout of SUP enthusiasts –young and old, and vendors enjoying the close match and picturesque setting.
Paddler Stu Robinson claimed the top position in the men’s 4km race with a time of 31:24.0. On the women’s side, Sue Sanders took the big win finishing at 38:24.1! In the 3km SUP race, Mark Kaercher was the first to finish the line with a time of 24:22.0 while Kindle Parsons clinched the top spot with an impressive time of 28:58.2.
