Paddle Second Chance

Welcome to Paddle Second Chance 2018:


PSC Friends and Family;

Thank you for managing the weather change-up pitch and participating in arguably the best water conditions we had since our inception six years ago. With your support and participation on and off the water, I am happy to report we raised over $ 50,000 for our local Wounded Veteran Families living on the Delmar Peninsula. Job well down! 

Here are the race results for PSC 2018:

On a very sad note Cody Lorns (pictured below with the beard) accidentally drowned doing what he loved to do SUP Boarding Monday evening. Cody is an inspiration to all of us, and his memory will live on as motivation to overcome all Life’s obstacles. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Be good, be safe and be kind until we meet again on the Indian River Bay.



It’s game time on Indian River Bay for another great Paddle Second Chance fun race and fundraiser on Saturday, June 23rd, 2018 at Holt’s Landing State Park.
