This Summer has been so much fun we just don’t want to let it end. The Tybee Island Sea Kayak Races are coming up on September 12. 2015. Thankfully, the weather stays very mild down here and that means more fun for everyone! The races will shove off from A-J’s Dockside, 1315 Chatham Ave and proceeds will benefit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. There will be three races with staggered start times:
- Tybee River Race: 6 1Ž2 miles on the tidal river separating Tybee and Little Tybee Islands.
- Little Tybee Challenge: 8 miles, circumnavigates part of Little Tybee Island.
- Race Across the River for Gold Sponsors: Our Gold sponsors compete for a grand prize.
Another great way to support the Tybee Island Marine Science Center is to become a race sponsor. Your race registration fee is included and you’ll get your name on the t-shirt and more! Bronze sponsor is $100; Silver sponsor is $250; Gold is $500 and Platinum $1000.
A good night’s sleep is key to getting ahead and staying ahead in the race, so be sure to book your Mermaid Cottage now! Here’s a look at some of our historic cottages available race weekend:
