Great job everyone!

The 2nd stop on the Conchanoo SUP Tour was The Rock Sound Eleuthera Homecoming in Eleuthera.  There was a great showing from the community to learn about SUP races and the event was focused at the infamous “Ocean Hole”, a large blue hole in Eleuthera.

Next stop on the Conchanoo CUP Tour is the Long Island Regatta, Salt Pond on June 7th and 8th. See you there!
