Place

Once again, Norwalk Parks and Recreation have made the facilities at Shady Beach available to us for the event. The wide and deep beach is flat and abuts the ample parking lot where you can leave your vehicle. There are 2 rest-rooms on site (yup you won't have to hit the porta-john before racing), and plenty of shade under the trees that border the beach.

 

Note that this spot is a public park and while we occupy the best spots it will be open to the public during the event. Accordingly, as you would in any public space, lock your vehicle once you have unloaded your boat and gear.

Note that Shady Beach is adjacent to of Calf Pasture Beach. You will access the site via Calf Pasture Beach Road Norwalk. This leads to the park entrance. Make a left on Shorehaven Road to enter Shady Beach. Coords are : 41.0881571,-73.3921403

The Lighthouse To Lighthouse Race is 7 or 14 miles of open water racing for any seaworthy, human-powered craft along the scenic Norwalk Islands on the Connecticut shore. Join us for a day of racing, food and fun on Long Island Sound.

Team Stellar USA member Beata Cseke talks about growing the ranks of women paddlers in surfski racing.
