The Battle of the Bay/WPA Championships to be held on October 17 & 18, 2015 in San Francisco, CA at Crissy Field will also serve as the Salt Life Cup finale. The combined cash purse of $24,000 will be given out to the top competitors on the same shores that the 50 mph foiling catamarans competed for the Americas Cup.
Competitors will be challenged with the currents and chop of San Francisco bay and the famous Alcatraz island will serve as a marker in the distance races. Open competitors will have their choice of the open bay waters or keep near the shore and paddle by the Golden Gate bridge.
The Salt Life Cup bonus of $8,500 will also be up for grabs with the young Mo Frietas leading the Men’s points and Annabel Anderson holding a commanding lead in the Women’s points. The Salt Life Cup is still alive for a host of other top paddlers like with Danny Ching, Travis Grant, Ryan Helm, Connor Baxter for the Men and Candice Appleby, April Zilg (2014 Champion) along with the upcoming Women stars of Fiona Wylde, Shae Foudy and Lexi Alston who still have a chance at the bonus money (see attached standings).
