yoloraceThe 7th Annual YOLO Board Relay Series will kick off its season on May 29. The races will consist of relay-style competition between male and female teams of three in a recreational division. The fun-filled series includes racers of all skill levels and ages from junior to seniors vying for the coveted champion title, all the while rallying in friendly competition out on local waters.

This year’s event will include giveaways, refreshments, and kids activities, as well as a welcomed new division to the race program dedicated to Special Olympics Florida SUP athletes from Okaloosa and Walton Counties. A strengthened supporter of Special Olympics since 2012, YOLO Board’s mission is to make SUP accessible and easy for area athletes.

Scheduled races (weather permitting) are set for May 29, June 19, and July 17th at The Bay Restaurant at the southern end of the 331 bridge. Paddlers will compete on YOLO 12’ recreation boards provided for complimentary use to racers by YOLO Board during each event.

YOLO Board is currently seeking both community sponsors and race teams for this year’s series. For racers, the one-time race entry fee is $180 per three-person relay team ($60 per person). Complimentary 2014 signature event t-shirts will be provided for each participating team at the debut race on May 29th.
