The world championship race will be conducted on 14’ boards for Men and 12’6 boards for Women. More details with the race format will be announced as there will be the World Championship race, Open race, sprint races and team relay races.
Competitors can qualify for the 2012 World Championship by participating in 2012 World Paddle Association sanctioned events by earning a spot into your respective regional championship, 12 National races, Hennessey’s-WPA U.S. Championships, 11 City Tour and top placing from the 2011 World and U.S. championships. Contact World Paddle Association for all the qualifying criteria.
Hennessey’s has conducted the International and World championships for more than 10 years that included events in Australia, Fiji, Hawaii, San Francisco, San Diego and Hermosa Beach. Since the Hennessey’s International events are truly a worldly competition it made sense for the event to be named the world championships and with Hennessey’s 18 year commitment to the sport of paddling.
