Standup paddleboarders traveled from Casa Guatemala to Livingston

A group of standup paddleboarders this past weekend paddled from Casa Guatemala orphanage, across the Golfete then through the canyon to Livingston as part of a Rio Dulce to Punta Gorda fundraiser for Casa Guatemala.

For those of you who don't know what Stand Up Paddleboarding is (SUP), you can check out their website HERE

The paddleboarders were escorted across the Golfete by Steve and Dave of s/v Tiama to the Roundhouse at the entrance to the canyon. Support staff and equipment were then transferred to m/v Steel Magnolia with Roy, Wally and Cowboy Hat Johnny on board.

After spending the night in Livingston, two paddleboarders set out for Punta Gorda, Belize while the rest of the group returned to Rio Dulce on m/v Steel Magnolia.

(Update: Two paddleboarders made the trip from Livingston to Punta Gorda in 7 1/2 hours. Victor wrote that they should have made it in 5 1/2 hours but they encountered strong northerly winds which greatly slowed their progress).

A professional video crew was on board to record the event for an upcoming documentary to raise funds for the orphanage.

Both Angie and Heather of Casa Guatemala went along for the ride.
