Kentucky’s first statewide paddlesports racing series returns with the 2018 Kentucky Waterman Series, presented by Breaks Interstate Park. Now in its second year, this all-inclusive race series will guide paddlers of all skills levels on an amazing journey across the state’s scenic waterways and lakes through 10 amazing paddlesports races. Organized by grassroot race directors and the EKI team, each race is joined together by unified class system, rankings leaderboard, tons of positive energy, a safety first mindset, and will continue the tradition of rad awards & prizes. SUP, Canoes, Kayaks are all invited to help us shine a positive light on Kentucky’s scenic waterways, invigorate ecotourism, and get people out on the water. #PaddleKentucky
