The Houseboat Expo will include a Standup Paddleboard Race for the first time ever. The race will take place around the one-mile Luau Loop. The scenery around the Luau Loop is beautiful and the race will take participants around the high cliffs and houseboat villages of Lake Cumberland in Kentucky.
Standup paddleboarding is a new water sport that offers a more relaxing way to explore the water. While standing up, participants can take in the beauty of whatever is around them.
If this is your first time standup paddleboarding, no problem. Rent some gear and sign up for the beginner race. There will be four different events for men and women paddlers of different levels. The race will take place on Saturday morning.
The race day registration will begin at 7 a.m. on Saturday followed by a warm-up and race debrief at 8.
The first race will be the elite race for men starting at 9 a.m. and the elite women will begin at 9:05. The beginner race for men will begin at 9:15 and the beginner race for women will start at 9:20. There will be an awards ceremony at 3 p.m. after the races where the top man and woman winner will receive a prize.
Participants will receive a t-shirt and a day pass to the houseboat expo.
