OABI - prounounced ō-‘äb-ē

OABI, the acronym for Once Around Belle Isle, is a 7-mile paddle race around Belle Isle in the international waters of
Windsor, Onatrio and Detroit, MI. What started as an underground race in 2012 with 25 Detroit/Windsor paddlers has turned into a Midwest paddle destination and the premier beach party in Detroit.

With an expanded program in 2014, OABI appealed to not only hardcore stand-up paddlers, but also kayakers, rowers, and those who are completely new to paddling. By combining a newbie-friendly paddlerama with classes and demos, live music, craft beer, food trucks, and a wide variety of paddle vendors, OABI is a festive and welcoming environment that celebrates Detroit’s rightful place as one of the world’s primary centers of water sports and recreation.
