Paddle WA Special Ski Regatta

This ski-only regatta is an opportunity for ski paddlers to engage in a new race format and gain access to a world-class paddling venue. In WA there are many who paddle skis, BUT who is truly the fastest ski paddler? Which ski is considered best for flatwater speed? Who will take home bragging rights?

This regatta is designed to provide ski paddlers a taste of the precision timing of a sprint kayak regatta in the comfort of their own ski, benchmarking performance over 3x Olympic class distances.
