Endurance Stand-Up-Paddles, canoes and kayaks, 4 or 10 hours… The choice is yours!

In 2024, the world’s only paddle endurance event will be open to canoes and kayaks. The only one of its kind in the world, this event supports the Sup World Ranking (awarding points to the top 20 finishers) and is a candidate for the French Ultra Long Distance Championship. The most courageous sailors compete over a 10-hour race in teams and relays, or solo, each at their own pace, thanks to the “24 Hours of Le Mans”-style stand-up system. The 4-hour Challenge, based on the same principle, as well as the Kids race, enable a wide public to try their hand at adventure and meet the elite of the discipline. The aim is simple: to complete as many laps as possible on a 6 km loop, as many times as necessary over the duration of the chosen event. – Paddle EXPO zone” and paddle rental by 3BayPaddle – Follow the race live on facebook on Live Total Sup – Giant screen on the beach throughout the event – The 4-hour event is open to paddle prone riders (lying on boards).
