Welcome to the 2015 US Surfski Championships!
Once again we are making another adjustment to the course. Moving back to the long course start at Rodeo Beach, we’re also adding a new section where we’ll race around one another world class iconic landmark. Alcatraz! This will add another unique dimension to one of the most iconic race courses in the World. Ocean start, race under the Golden Gate Bridge and then along the San Francisco waterfront and then race past thousands of tourists as your paddle right next to Alcatraz to the finish at the Berkeley Pier. One of the great things about our race, conditions are always changing along with the course. It’s the one race where it’s always different in so many ways, you have to keep coming back for more! Stay tuned for more race details as we get closer to race day.
The new course has us returning to the OSCS Sailing Center site for the finish, within walking distance of the Double Tree Hotel. It’s just a short walk to Shorebird Park where we have our annual Demo day. For friends and family, they can walk out on the Berkeley Pier and watch the last 2/3 miles of the race.
