The Ontario SUP race series returns to Collingwood as part of their Sidelaunch Days Weekend of fun filled events. For a full list of activities please go to

The SUP Race Series will take place on Saturday August 12. Retuning this year will be a combination of long distance and sprint races.

The long distance races have different distances according to the racer classification (Elite (8km), Open (5km), Novice (2km) and Youth (1km). For a full list of races and classifications please refer to:

The Sprint races have the same format as Ski Cross, that is, 4 races compete head to head with the top 2 advancing to the next round. This is a very exciting format and the races are looking forward to this event.

During the day there will be free demo boards by Blu Wave and Starboard.

At the end of the day racers will make up teams of 5 to race head to head on the Blue Whale. It’s a knock out format where only one team will be crowned champion.

There will be a fundraising Paddlethon for the Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society on Sunday August 13th. Their goal is to raise awareness of the need to repair and restore this historic piece of Collingwood’s History. The fun 4km paddle will start in Princeton Shores. For more details and to register please go to the NLPS web site.
