BOGA Race Board Takes top 10 at Carolina Cup Results 2013
The Carolina CUP Race is noted as a top world class event in the SUP community. This years 2013 lived up to its title as more than 400 paddlers for 40 states and 6 countries converged on Wrightsville Beach, NC. The Elite class was stacked with over 20 of the worlds top names in Stand Up, a list of names rare to see at one event. The 13 Mile course proved to to match its name “The Graveyard” race as conditions and currents brewed up one of the events more difficult in history.

BOGA once again showed up in force with Jeramie Vaine taking an impressive top 10 result in the Elite 13 course. Other BOGA victories could be seen in all classes, including a top 3 in the woman’s 6 mile race, 1st in the Surf Class, 3rd in Masters and a 7th overall in the Money Run Race against over 140 paddlers. More details to follow.

Siesta Key Classic
One of the most grueling races of the year took place on the USA’s number one voted beach Siesta Key this April, 2013. Racers from all over the state and beyond dueled it out for 13 miles in high ocean swells, windy inland bays. They even maneuvered over hundreds of Stingrays at one point while chasing down the clock in the huge wind swell.

BOGA’s Jeramie Vaine from CA took First place 12.6 (Second overall) minutes ahead of any other racers in the Men’s class. Female athlete and Florida local Cat Uden took a hard fought 2nd overall in the woman’s class in the what she claims as “the hardest race ever done”. Dave Meyler rounded up the wins by taking 1st overall in the short race (On the El Rey Surf Shape, beating all race boards).

Post race, we were greeted with some rare waves at Siesta Key and surfed the end of the day away. Thanks to all our friends and racers for making the Siesta Key Classic one to remember!
