Are you brave, competitive, and not afraid of a little cold water? We’re debuting a brand new Paddle Race at next weekend’s Blessing of the Fleet festival! Kayaks, SUP or canoes welcome! 1 or 2 person teams with prizes for Best Time & Best Dressed! We launch from Harbor View Park in front of The Ridges Sanctuary and paddle to the end of the Marina. It’s a relatively short paddle so all skill levels are welcome. Besides, if you tip over, you’re in like two feet of water! 😂Kayaks provided by Lakeshore Adventures Kayak so don't worry if you don't have one!


Participants all get a free drink from the Beer Stand! Who’s brave enough to claim the title Paddle King or Queen?

Our Door County waterfront resort is open year round. You can explore its natural beauty in every season: spring when the woods come alive with flowers, summer with its sunny days at the beach, fall with its festivals and trees dressed in a rainbow of colors, and winter with its quiet beauty of glittering snow on groomed trails. Afterwards, relax in one of our comfortable one and two bedroom suites, or staterooms; most with scenic views of the tranquil harbor or Toft’s Point Nature Preserve just across the road. Baileys Harbor Yacht Club Resort is open year round to provide our guests with premier accommodations during Door County’s four seasons of fun and relaxation.
