“Lake Mary Jane Paddlefest was amazing as always this year. It’s one we never miss...  If you have never been I would definitely add it to your list... The love and support of SUP is palpable at this race. Good competition and even more pats on the back and smiles... Great food and beer. Lots of different races and activities for all levels and the whole family.”  — RACHEL FERGUSON, JUPITER, FL, SUP ATHLETE

2017 Race Recap & Results

Connecting our community, getting people on the water for a good time, and giving back is our mission, in which the 6th Annual Lake Mary Jane Paddlefest was a success!  Offering fun activities for all experience levels, ages and paddle craft within a spectator and family friendly environment, this festival captured attention, including a variety of paddle craft and participation, even with the untimely arrival of hurricanes Irma, Jose, and Maria.  From our collective efforts we proudly donated partial proceeds to Above the Wake, a non profit organization that provides positive watersports experiences to kids living with Autism and cognitive delays.
