The race, hosted by Waste Water Management and Florida Paddling Trails Association, starts at Jonathan Dickinson Park (16450 S.E. Federal Highway) in Hobe Sound. The fee is $8 per person and $2 for parking. Attendees will enjoy a complimentary lunch; participants should bring their own beverages, but no alcohol (it’s not allowed in the park).

If you don’t have a canoe or kayak, you can rent one at Jonathan Dickinson Park. To rent a stand-up paddle board or kayak, check out Jupiter Pointe Paddling.
