Causeway to Causeway C2C
Our sixth annual Causeway to Causeway (C2C) is scheduled for 27 October 2012. This will again be an 11 or 22 mile non trophy event, but we will track participants finish times. All paddle craft are welcome to attend.
Sign-up will start at 7AM and we will start promptly at 8 AM. The entry fee is $35. This will include t-shirts and lunch. The challenge will start at Lee Wenner Park in Cocoa at the base of the SR 520 Causeway bridge. The course will parallel the Intracoastal Waterway in the Indian River and continue south for 11 miles to the bridge at the Pineda Causeway (SR 519). Turn around will be just prior to the bridge at a Manatee No Wake Zone sign which will also be marked with a buoy.
There will be a maximum of 4 hours for paddlers to reach the turn- around point. Any paddlers not meeting the 4 hours will exit the water at POW-MIA Park adjacent to the turn around. Any one exiting here will be provided a ride back to Lee Wenner Park.
Escort boats will follow the paddlers and escort stragglers to the finish line. There will be water on board the boats for paddlers but plan on bringing sufficient water for yourself. A hydration pack or equivalent is recommended. Also reef shoes are recommended for water entry and exit.
Please e-mail if you plan on attending so we can get an idea of how many t-shirts to order (firstname.lastname@example.org) . We are getting very excited about holding this challenge. It will be a lot of fun and a will be a true long distance challenge for everyone. We will be sending more updates as the date gets closer.
This event is being organized by the Cocoa Beach Surf Museum. All proceeds benefit the operation of the museum and its community programs.
