The Newquay Paddle went ahead as planned on the 3rd September at Newquay Harbour. Despite the weather being hit and miss and the swell being all over the place the conditions came good for the event, even the sun made an appearance from time to time. Over 300 spectators attended the event to watch and support the 90 paddlers. A great time was had by all and over £7000 was raised for at least 11 charities.
Newquay Surf Life Saving Club kicked off the event with Sue Butler organising the kids’ relays. Sue Butler said, “This has been a great event and a fun way to remember Joe who I was lucky enough to have known”.
