yolo1South Walton Lifeguards and On the Coast win 2nd YOLO SUP Race in Series

What a beautiful evening it turned out to be for the second race of the YOLO Board Stand Up Paddleboard Race series.

Nine ladies teams hit the water paddling hard. The top three finishers all crossed the line within one minute of each other. Third place was Team Balance at 26:58. Second place, Kitty Hawk Kites at 26:32. And the ladies victory went to On The Coast Magazine Power Moms with a winning time of 25:59.

There were 13 Men’s teams and, as we have witnessed before, our local lifeguard teams are serious about this competition. The top three teams were The South Walton Lifeguards (gold team) at 21:50. Second place honors go to the Destin Lifeguard team at 21:23. Our champions for the evening were the South Walton Lifeguard Black team, headed by Gary Wise and Sean Hughes (both FL State SUP champions) with a winning time of 21:50.

The next race is at 5:30 on June 19th, at Baytowne Marina at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort.
