2017 Carolina Cup Kicks off This Week

It’s almost here! The biggest paddle racing event on the East Coast and the first major competition of 2017 – the 7th Annual West Marine Carolina Cup!  This is our hometown race but as we’ve said before, for many of us it’s more than just a contest – it’s like a homecoming.

This week, the Mullet will feature a series of posts on the Cup, starting off today with an  overview of the week’s schedule.
