The Drakes Island Paddle

Take on a charity SUP challenge to raise money for The Chestnut Appeal and local water safety.  The Drake’s Island Paddle is a fun SUP race on Sunday 27th June at South West SUP in Royal William Yard. Taking place the same day as the Drake’s Island Swim, all profit from the event will be donated to the Chestnut Appeal and the Wave after Wave water safety initiative.

The Drakes Island Paddle is a perfect introduction to SUP racing involving a lap of the island from SWSUP at Firestone Arch – a course distance of just over 3km. There will be full safety cover and control of shipping movements for the duration of the event. This is a fun race for all paddlers but you must have previous experience to participate.
