Paddleboard competition raises funds for multi-town bike path

A group of 20 paddleboarders raced down the Woodward Reservoir at the first Make A Wave race, held Saturday, Aug. 26.

PLYMOUTH—First Stop Board Barn of West Bridgewater hosted its first annual Make A Wave benefit paddleboard race Saturday, Aug. 26.

The highly anticipated race was held at the Farm and Wilderness Camp beach on Woodward Reservoir in Plymouth. The goal of the charity event was to raise money for the development of a multi-purpose bike path that would connect the surrounding towns of Ludlow, Plymouth, Bridgewater, Woodstock, and Killington.

At the sound of the cowbell, 20 adults began paddling, making waves as they charged the mile-long course. A minute after the adult start, children launched through the water, racing in their own category.

Coming in with the fastest time of the day, Karen Dalury of Killington Yoga won the event overall. Dalury’s time was 12:28:74. Coming in second place was Nick Johnson with a time of 13:44:44. Third place was taken by Tao Smith, Head of School at the Killington Mountain School, with a time of 13:48:47.
