Calling All Paddle Boarders: The Head of The Dart 2017

February 23 2017 Categories: News, Our News



Initially the event was designed for rowers in the Dartmouth/ Totnes area, however due to the increasing popularity of Stand Up Paddleboaring (SUP), the event was spread out over two days; rowers competed the Saturday and SUP held their event on the Sunday. Since the SUP introduction in 2015, and the boom in popularity, the event has since seen a massive growth in competitors. Both recreational paddler’s and the serious contenders.

In the past this has been a thoroughly enjoyable event as well as a sense of achievement for the more leisurely paddlers, and well worth participating in.

The different classes for the event are:

  • Ladies:
    • Ladies Leisure Class (cruising & fun)
    • Ladies Unlimited Class (all boards over 14’0″)
    • Ladies 12’6″ Racing
    • Ladies 14’0″ Racing
  • Mens:
    • Mens Leisure (cruising & fun)
    • Mens Unlimited Class (all boards over 14’0″)
    • Mens 12’6″ Racing
    • Mens 14’0″ Racing
