Portsmouth Paddle Battle

Portsmouth Paddle Battle

1 High Street •


Join us on the waterfront for the 3rd Annual Portsmouth Paddle Battle on the Elizabeth River. Participants will compete in SUP and kayak categories depending on age/experience level. This event will be an awesome day out on the water and on land. Enjoy live music and good food and drinks. And prizes! We will also have special events for children. Proceeds will help the Friends support the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Museum and the Lightship Portsmouth Museum.
The Race Course will be from High Street Basin in Olde Towne to the Hammerhead Crane on the Shipyard and back. A limited number of kayaks will be made available on a first-come first-serve basis to people wishing to participate but who do not own their own kayak.

Racing will also feature a series of Challenge Races involving racers from the Navy Medical Center Portsmouth, the Coast Guard and others.
