Join the Excitement!

The Paddle Logger Falmouth Bay Open is the 4th stop on the 2024 GBSUP National Series, and it promises two days of exhilarating races, breathtaking views of Falmouth Bay, and a vibrant event atmosphere. Whether you're a seasoned competitor or a recreational paddler, this exciting event has something for everyone.

Race Formats:

  • Distance Race: Set out in the beautiful Falmouth Bay, the distance course is expected to be 10 km long. Race fleets start and finish at the beach, completing two laps of the 5 km course. The Challenge Tour will complete a single lap of a 5 km distance course to experience what racing is all about.
  • Technical Race: Using heats to a final format, expect short and fast technical racing with multiple turns and a beach start. Each lap will include a running transition around a flag on the beach. The Technical Race will be 1.5km in total length, split over multiple laps.
  • Tech Sprints: Short and fast racing right off the beach with a gated turn providing plenty of action in this heat to a final format. The course will be a beach start paddling out 75m to a gated turn where paddlers can choose to turn left and right. The finish is back at the beach, running through the finish flags. Competitors will compete in 2 heats, progressing to a final.

National Series Scoring:

To earn an overall position and National Series Scoring, paddlers in the race fleets must complete all three formats: distance, Tech, and Tech Sprints. The results from the individual races will be scored and then totalled to determine the overall placings for the event in the competitive fleets.

Challenge Tour:

Try your hand a racing and take on a personal challenge across our race formats. A fun run-style competition across shorter distances for the Distance and Tech races with some fun sprints as well.


This year's event includes a full rostrum of junior racing, including Distance and Tech Sprints providing our junior paddlers the opportunity to test their skills over the weekend and try SUP racing in this competitive yet welcoming set of races.
