3 Mile Fun Paddle

(actual distance approximately 2.7 miles)

The 3 mile race course is an approximate distance. The only markings for the course are the geography of Naples Island itself. The race route heads out into the bay to circumnavigate Naples Island in a counter-clockwise direction. Both the start and finish areas are on the beach between the two sailing docks. The fastest line isn't always achieved by hugging the land on your left.

Buoys are for sighting only and there will be minimal directional aid during the race. It is advised that competitors become familiar with the course map, which will also be posted at registration.


All craft types are permitted, but personal flotation devices are required.

If you don't have a craft to use, then arrangements can be made ahead of time with Stand Up Rentals.
