The Bunny Blitz is a Sprint SUP Race on April 5, 2015, Easter Afternoon Fun located at NorBanks Sailing Center, Duck, NC. Similar to last year’s wildly fun and successful sprint event, they will run a series of elimination heats. This year however we will run the Bunny Blitz Sprint Event in the sound at NorBanks Sailing Center venue. The course will again be short and the heats will be fast and furious. Each heat will have 4 persons, the first 2 across the line advance to race (and suffer) again. The course geometry will be set to make the most of the weather conditions on race day with the goal of testing both straight line speed, board handing and tactics.

Awards: Immediately after races.
Party & Easter Egg Hunt: Immediately after awards.
