Bay-to-Gulf SUP Race 2011

Lee County's FIRST paddleboard race was a huge success!  May 1, 2011, Bunche Beach was filled to the brim with paddleboards.  Some belonged to racers, others to the numerous outfitters who helped sponsor the event.  Thanks to everyone who made this event possible and to those who came out to support the SWFL SUP community!  Keep your eyes peeled for the next SWFL paddleboard race in November.  Below are the race results from the Bay-to-Gulf SUP Race 2011:
