Sponsors Are Rallying Behind SUP Mexico Championships!
November 3rd marks the beginning of the 3rd Annual SUP Mexico-Mike Doyle Los Cabos Classic Stand Up Paddle Race & Hennessey’s World Paddle Championships at Palmilla Beach. The two-day event will involve a lot of activities, events and general fun things during the action-packed 3-day championships. Both the community and sponsors are rallying behind the SUP Mexico Championships; the event has all the markings of a huge success.
Businesses involved in the event (sponsors, organizers and contributors) include Campamento Tortuguero Don Manuel Orantes (Cabo Tortugas), Yellow Tail, Clase Azul Tequila, Alecran Tequila, Peligroso Tequila, Tecate Beers, Don Sanchez Restaurant, Habaneros Restaurant, Royal Solaris Resort, Baja.com, Alaska Airlines, SUP Mexico, Bliss Events Los Cabos, Hennessey’s, Hobie, Snell Real Estate and Del Mar Development. Obviously, with this many big names involved, the event is not just about stand up paddleboarding – there will be a lot of other things going on! Aside from all of the aforementioned businesses somehow involved in the event, many businesses (local and from much further afield) will have booths at the event. This will be a great event for the community of Los Cabos, as well as for the SUP community.
Campamento Tortuguero Don Manuel Orantes (Cabo Tortugas) is a charity dedicated to helping Baja’s endangered sea turtles, and the organization that the 3rd Annual SUP Mexico-Mike Doyle Los Cabos Classic Stand Up Paddle Race & Hennessey’s World Paddle Championships will benefit from. The organization helps to protect the turtle eggs before they hatch and then during the “hatch and release” process they help the turtles find their way to the water safely. They hold their turtle releases in a sanctuary next to the San José del Cabo estuary. Campamento Tortuguero is a non-profit organization. Donations, volunteering or sponsoring a turtle are the best ways to help Campamento Tortuguero Don Manuel Orantes. Look forward to a turtle release at the championship!
Yellow Tail, Clase Azul Tequila, Alecran Tequila, Peligroso Tequila and Tecate Beers are all providing drinks for the event; Don Sanchez Restaurant and Habaneros Restaurant will be providing the food. Don Sanchez is also hosting the grand opening and closing ceremonies. The championships are sure to excite any gourmets, culinary enthusiasts and drinkers from all walks of life.
Other highlights and things to look forward to throughout the weekend include bootcamp classes from Cabo local fitness god/guru Modu (http://www.moduvated.com/Moduvatedtobefit/MDVFIT_Home.htm), a local school art and essay competition, a beach concert and what is sure to be a great raffle with some very impressive prizes up for grabs.
The two primary sponsors for the event are Snell Real Estate and Del Mar Development. This will be the third year running that Del Mar Development has sponsored the SUP championships. Both organizations do a tremendous amount of work in the Los Cabos community. The SUP event organizers are quick to point out that the success of this program will be due to the community, as a whole, and to the many sponsors who have stepped up to the cause.
