The Drake’s Island Paddle 2022

3rd July 2022 @ 8:00 am 10:00 am

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 3rd July at South West SUP in Royal William Yard. Taking place the same day as the Drakeโ€™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 is aimed at those with their own board and you must have previous experience to participate. If you would like to hire a board for the event, contact info@southwestsup.co.uk.

If you would like to take part as a team contact info@southwestsup.co.uk for availability of 4 and 8 person paddleboards. A SUPer fun way to take part, have fun on the water and support local charities!

There will be a race briefing at Firestone Arch at 8am before everyone takes to the water, aiming for an 830am race start. The paddle route should take a maximum of 1 hour even at a leisurely pace!

Hurricane Nigel, low pressure systems in the Atlantic incoming, very high winds Sunday and on Wednesday this week (gusts predicted up to 66mph on Wednesday afternoon).

We are afraid that we will be grabbing the pontoons as and when we have a weather window.

Cattewater Harbour Commissioners will take them out one at a time, hopefully easing you into their winter storage time, but this is for the safety of the pontoons, but more importantly yourselves.

As soon as we know when they will be coming out, we will let you know, but just to give you a heads up, as much as we wanted to keep them in for as long as possible. Unfortunately the winds and swell have appeared as suddenly as autumn seems to have.

The water temperature is a balmy 16.5oC, not into cold water shock territory yet, but in the latest Plymouth Sound National Marine Park newsletter, out soon, we've written loads on staying safe whilst bobbing this autumn/winter, taking pressure off Plymouth Lifeboat Station.

We'll let you know as soon as the pontoons are coming out. But please remember if in doubt, don't go out.

Thank you
