Battle Of The Thames SUP Race

Blue Chip hosted one of the World’s largest SUP events this weekend, the latest in their Battle of the Thames series, with attendants coming from across the globe to compete.

Saturday 18th of May saw over 100 competitors take to the water at the Thames Sailing Club, London. These competitors included the biggest names in the sport: Ryan James, Paul Simmons and of course the 10x SUP World Champion – Jamie Mitchell, who is touring the UK this week.

The headline race of the day was undoubtedly the 10 mile event. Paul Simmons shot off straight away from the crowded start line and held the lead for over a mile before World Champion Jamie Mitchell ate away at that and eventually claimed the win in 1:45:22.
