The 7th annual Ride the Bull race will be held on June 15, 2019. Hosted by Wesley Echols and Tim Dwyer, this 9 mile race on Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay is a true open-water event, with rough ocean conditions likely. Although primarily for surfskis, outrigger canoes are also welcome to participate. There is no registration fee for this race.  However, you must register prior to race day unless you receive express permission from Wesley or Tim.  No awards will be given, but this race is part of both the SurfskiRacing.com and New England Surfski point series. There will likewise be no food or drink provided, although we’ll go out together after the race for lunch.   Here’s a link to the course map.
