THE ULTIMATE 9KM DOWNWIND RACE

To kickstart the Dragon World Championships, teams were invited to battle it out over the ultimate 9km downwind SUP race from the picture-perfect Miami Beach all the way to the main event site at Paddle Barbados. The race, aptly named the Dragon Run, was open to both individual paddlers and Dragon teams, and saw paddlers battling it out through the rough, open ocean swells as they surged their way around the coast and onwards to the finish line.  After some intense racing and close fought competition, individual paddler Artur Barreiros made the most of the calm waters in the bay to pull in first, just 60 seconds ahead of the RED  SUP Ladies, who claimed first place for a Dragon team. Not far behind, local favourites Paddle Barbados showed they had been putting the year with their in-house Dragon to good practice to secure themselves a well-deserved second. Individual paddler Georgie Page from the UK came flying in to take 4th place overall.
