About the race:
Every year ISK helps to host the Martha's Vineyard Oar and Paddle Regatta from our beach location in Sengekontacket pond. Swimmers and paddlers of all kind come together to race 2.4 miles and raise money for cleaner waters! The proceeds from the race go to Friends of Sengekontacket, who works to keep the water that we race in every year protected.The race is followed by a beach picnic and awards ceremony!
What's The Price?
The race is $45 a person. Single paddlers pay $45 and doubles pay $90 ! Remember, proceeds go to keeping our waters clean! This price included an entry into the race and a racing day packet!
What can I paddle?
Racers are welcome to paddle anything that floats. We usually have kayaks, paddle boards, swimmers, canoes, row boats, and the occasional bath tub! Everyone races in different categories depending on your racing equipment.
