Downwind Cup

Date: May 1 to Sep 30
Distance: 12 km +

Course details: Point-to-point course, best done with a tailwind. This is an open-water race in spirit, which means lake/ocean with wind, rather than a river with current.

Meet the minimum distance requirement, but feel free to go longer. Results ranked by average pace (min/km). You can re-post better results during the race period.

Felt good to be back on a board. Not a fast time, but a good time - sunny, cool, breezy fall paddle. Grateful for this big, beautiful, open lake - Lake O. ❤️
Good luck to everyone as the season winds down.🤞Enjoy your time on the water!!

That’s not a bad time, Sharon!

Hi everyone. My buddy Hugh Wilson is selllng this SUP board. He only used it 3 times. He’s looking to get $1800 or best offer, he said he’s super flexible on price. Just trying to sell quickly before the cold weather. He’s got 3 different fins that you could choose from. I’m the first person to admit I’m an OC guy and I don’t know anything about SUP, so it’s best to call him if interested. 416-558-9862. You can say you saw Lamond and Angie’s post on Facebook. Just want to say Hugh is a great guy who we rely on to fix dings in our OC boat. He’s very reasonably priced and very fair, so Even without knowing anything about SUP boards I know Hugh, and I’m quite sure $1800 is a fair price. I know he said he’s very flexible on price but please don’t try to lowball him. He’s located in Pickering. ... See MoreSee Less

Well it was a good one!! A beautiful warm sunny day with pretty consistant 30km winds for 14 kilometres of pure downwind fun!! For now… I will submit this DW I did yesterday for The Downwind Cup.
18 days left in September….and 3 races still left for me to do😬!

Looks like great conditions!

Took it 30 km home from Burlington in 20+ knots. It was blasting, but the water just had a weird personality today. Still posting a new 12k split for the Downwind Cup. ... See MoreSee Less

Nice one Rob!

Like all of the other races/challenges, the Downwinder again got me completely out of my comfort zone.. I would have typically reached for my kite gear not thinking it was possible to paddle a SUP with the heavy conditions today…
This was by far the Most Fun Challenge of the season!! Hands down.. I not only fell off 13x, I absolutely went flying backwards off the board stretching my leash to the max.. lol

There would have been a Lot more swimming if I hadn’t reached out to Brent Ackland to try an actual downwind board which kept me upright and flying when I got things right..
Thanks for the great paddle out there Dmitri Tsvetkov!

Sometime with too much wind ,it’s not as fast as we think because the wave get hard to catch

I almost endured 57km.
