A GREAT DAY COMBINING FUN, EXERCISE AND FUND RAISING!
On July 21, 2013, 18 standup paddleboarders set out on a 25-km journey from Nickel Beach, Port Colborne to Crystal Beach, Ontario. Proceeds from this event were donated to Carolinian Canada Coalition and the Erie Coastal Stewardship EcoTrail.
The Reef Warriors set the pace. After a lunch break at Pleasant they continued on to the Point Abino lighthouse. A swim and photo break was taken at the lighthouse. The most challenging part was the last 1-2k. The boat traffic caused criss-crossed waves and weaving through swimmers at a crowded finish line was tough too! Congrats to all paddlers on a job well done!
