Mewstone Paddle Challenge & Paddleboard Race – Saturday 14th May 2011

May 9 2011 Categories: News

This weekend there will be a charity paddle challenge and paddle-board race taking place in Wembury, in aid of St. Luke’s Hospice, Plymouth . There will be three events: the charity paddle challenge, paddleboard race and the Mewstone swim challenge.

The first event to take off is the Mewstone swim challenge. This is an open water challenge, for experience swimmers only, and starts at 09:30.

The paddleboard race is a 4.5 mile circuit, which starts at 10:00. At Triocean Surf we stock Stand Up Paddleboarding equipment to get you on your way.

And finally, the charity paddle challenge will involve surfboards, longboards, kayaks, paddleboards, foamies and stand-up paddleboards.

For this paddle fancy dress will be optional, with a 10:15 start.

For all events registration starts 08:30 and there will be a £10 entry fee, with RNLI safety boats present throughout the event. Here is some footage from the Mewstone Paddle Challenge in 2009.

Afterwards there will be a presentation at The Old Wheel Pub from 13:00 for the racers, swimmers and best fancy dress. For the youngsters there will face painting, hair braiding, bouncy castle and a Hip-Hop dance display. There will be nine live bands and a DJ. Food and beverages will be available, as well as a raffle where the top prize will be a Luke Young Surfboard.

This is sure to be a great day out whilst supporting a good cause. Should you need anymore information please contact Mr. Pearson: 07870 647258. Or you can email: or
