Race Description: 2nd Annual Beach to Bay Classic
The 2012 race will be held on Saturday, July 28th!
The race is designed to attract everyone from elite competitors to beginner level paddlers (conditions permitting), allowing everyone a chance to get in on the fun and support the Long Beach HS Surf Team, The Danny Bobis Memorial Scholarship fund and the world famous Camp Anchor for children with disabilities in Lido Beach, NY.
For 2012, we’ll be following the same 7 mile race course as the 2011 event. There will be a beach start at approximately 11am at Beach 90th Street in Rockaway Beach, NY. Competitors will head east along open ocean for approximately 3.5 miles, hugging the shoreline, and after crossing under the Atlantic Beach bridge will enter Reynolds Channel, passing alongside the picturesque Atlantic Beach inner coast and ending just west of Maryland Avenue, in the famous West End of Long Beach.
