Kentucky’s first statewide paddlesports league returns with the 2019 Kentucky Waterman Series. Now in its third year, this all-inclusive series guides paddlers of all skills levels on an amazing journey across the state’s scenic waterways and lakes through several amazing paddlesports events. Organized by grassroots organizers and the EKI team, each event is joined together by unified class system, rankings leaderboard, tons of positive energy, a safety first mindset, and a passion for water conservation.  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
