Annual Whale of a Race, PiliPili River Bar, Witsand.
A fun weekend with some serious SUP’ing. The “Whale of a Race” has established itself as one of the best paying races in the country, but the prizes don’t come easy. The mighty Breede river always has a surprise waiting for race day. Whether wind, current, sandbanks or waves, it’s bound to be interesting. Throw in a NSRI benefit potjie, surfing, kiting and the indomitable Beerpong Champs, and you’ll have a weekend sure to remember.
The Southern Right whale numbers this year are breaking records in Witsand with over 1300 counted in the San Sebastian bay area. Numerous white calves are also to be seen. We are including a “Baby Whale” this year for kids and leisure paddlers, so no one has an excuse to stay at home.
