East End Race Series

A friendly competition on Casco Bay for kayakers and paddleboarders

Series Pass Includes Race T-shirt
Single Race Entry

The East End Race Series is a ten-week series of friendly competitions for kayakers and paddleboarders, with races scheduled every Monday evening, the first week of July through the first week of September!

The first nine weeks will be our regular evening series, with a tenth finale event on Labor Day afternoon (the first Monday in September). We encourage both “serious” racers and more casual paddlers to join the fun. It’s a great way to connect with other paddlers, train your paddling muscles, and enjoy an evening paddle on beautiful Casco Bay! 

Purchase a series pass and compete as many weeks as you like for $45, or join a single race for just $12. With a series pass you can decide each week which class you’ll join, so you can transition from the beginner to experienced classes or switch between SUP, K1 and K2.

Need a kayak or SUP to compete? All registered racers can rent a kayak or SUP from Portland Paddle for just $15 extra. Select this option when signing up.
