AV SUP Club welcome you to the 2018 River Hamble Games. We are once again hosting the SUP Challenge of the day and are looking forward to a fun event with some keen competition for medals. Club Members and Instructors will be available on the day for chats and advice on all aspects of SUP.
Racing will take place on the Hamble River in two formats - Main Long Distance Medal Race and a shorter Novice Race. Registration commences at 10:00 with Race/Safety briefs for both events commencing at 10.30 by the RedPaddle Co gazebo. Launching will be from the foreshore between the Beach Hut Cafe and RedPaddle Co gazebo.
Main Long Distance Medal Race (7km)
This will be a long distance race, consisting of a 7km race lasting 1 - 1.5 hours. The event will start at approximately 11:00am (with registration having taken place at 10.00 and briefings at 10:30).
All entries should be made ahead of the event via the online registration form and competitors are required to have their own boards to participate. There will be two groups, depending on the type of board you have; "Fun" Boards (all-round boards up to & including 12') and "Race/Touring" boards (12'6" to 14').
The Main Long Distance Race will have medals awarded for each of the two board classes (Fun & Race/Touring) in male and female categories across the following age groups (age to be on the day of the event - 16th June 2018):
- Junior (12-16 years)

Shorter Novice Race (4km)
The Novice Race is hosted as a "Give it a Go!" Event. All entries should be made ahead of the event via the online registration form and competitors are required to have their own boards to participate. Any board type and length can be entered as stated above.
Starting around the same time as the Main Medal Race, the Novice competitors will paddle out and back along the same route though of a shorter distance and with the same male and female categories as the Main Race.
