We will also be raising funds through raffle tickets & t-shirt sales at the race site. All proceeds go to THE JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION

Race Day Registration will start as early as 7:30 am on site
There will also be a "fun paddle" that is FAMILY FRIENDLY which starts just after the “serious” racers. This will be just one lap at your own pace around Naples Island. If you have young children on your board make sure they have a life vest on.
