East End Tourism Alliance is hosting the 5th annual “Paddle Battle Long Island” races! Competitive and recreational races for Stand Up Paddle Boards, Kayaks and canoes to be held on Saturday July 29, 2017 on the Peconic River in Riverhead NY. Our goal is to support two organizations; the non-for-profit organization United Way of Long Island’s VetsBuild Program, Supporting Veterans and Military Families and the Long Island Aquarium. The Peconic River is a beautiful stretch of estuary on the east end which makes it the perfect location for this race. Race course features will consist of a 2.5 mile, 5 mile and 12 miles. This event is great for the competitive and recreational paddlers!
