The majority of the top 20 ranked paddlers have flocked to the East Coast of America for the race and it is sure to be one of the most eagerly contested events in history.
Blue Planet's Ty Judson and Nathan Cross will be there to fly the flag for Australia and challenge the worlds best. Both Ty and Nathan have been training hard on their new 14' x 22" custom Blue Planet Allround models and are sure to be there challenging at the finish.
The race will be live on The Paddle League from 10am Saturday 21st of April (local time) - 12am Midnight Eastern Standard time in Australia (set your alarm clock or just stay up late with a few cold one's handy).
Good luck boys and to all competitors, we hope its a fun and safe race.
