Congrats to Amanda Norton and crew for the successful running of the 6th Annual Shore-to-Shore Paddle Race from Bolinas to Stinson Beach. Over 60 participants of all ages paddled surfboards, paddleboards, SUPs, kayaks and outriggers the 2.5 miles of the short course and the 7 miles of the long course from Brighton Beach in Bolinas to the lifeguard tower at Stinson Beach. Afterwards all enjoyed a picnic in the park with a gourmet meal provided by the Parkside Cafe and BBQ oysters from the Drakes Bay Oyster farm. The event was a fundraiser for the Stinson Beach Junior Lifeguards and Surfrider Foundation Marin County.
Due to the financial success of the paddle, again the Stinson Beach Junior Lifeguard association can provide a FREE program for over 100 kids between the ages of 11 and 17, for teaching water safety, lifesaving skills, water rescue techniques, health and fitness, environmental and resource protection, and much more.
