On Saturday August 27th the Second Annual Bellingham Paddle Grand Prix will be hosted in Bellingham WA.
The race course will consist of a roughly 2-mile oval track running just off shore between the north end of Boulevard Park and south to Taylor Street Dock. It will be a floating start with racers going three full laps to the finish. The whole race will be 100% viewable and spectator friendly!
