2015 Carolina Cup

April 22-26, 2015

The second National Points Race of the year!

The 2015 Carolina Cup kicks off the race season with 4 courses: a kids race, the Harbor Island Recreational “fun” race, an Money Island open race and the dreaded Graveyard Elite Race. In 2012, the Carolina Cup was the largest race on the East Coast with over 400 paddlers competing in the first day of races. In 2013, we had over 600. In 2014, there were over 700.

This year—our 5th—will be bigger than ever, with a number of really fun events, including the Ocean of Hope Cancer Awareness Paddle, all of which will make this a true stand up paddle destination event.

Expect clinics by the top paddle instructors and certifiers in the world.

Bring the whole family for this amazing 5-day weekend.
