YOLO Board LLC announces the next two race series dates for their  2009 YOLO Board Stand-Up Paddle Series. Next date is Thursday, May 21, at Western Lake at WaterColor Boat House.  Male and female division four-member teams will compete in a series of five races that will take place monthly for the champion title “2009 YOLO Board Cup Series” to be awarded after the final race in August.

“After the huge success with last year’s race series, we are looking forward to building an even bigger event this year,” said Jeff Archer, co-founder of YOLO Board.  “The YOLO race series is intended to be a fun, light-hearted community event that introduces people to the world of stand-up paddling and the positive response we’ve received since last year’s series has been incredible.”

Race dates (weather permitting) are at 5:30 p.m.:  May 21, Western Lake at WaterColor Boat House, June 19, at Baytowne Marina at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, July 23 at Western Lake at WaterColor Boat House, and August 13 (TBA).  A one time race entry fee is $140 per team.  Complimentary 2009 signature race series t-shirts will be provided for each participating team member and YOLO boards will be available for use at each race event.
