Teams will be racing for the best time on a ‘mega’ paddle board when a watersports business thanks its customers with a fundraiser for Sidmouth Lifeboat.

To mark Jurassic Paddle Sports’ fifth season, Guy Russell is planning a fun, family-friendly challenge to boost awareness of water safety next Sunday, August 27. Teams of six to eight will paddle a measured distance on the 17ft board, with prizes for the best times and goodies for everyone who enters.

Guy, the lifeboat’s senior coxswain, said: “The giant paddle board is great fun; kids love it. It’s about fun, but I also want to raise awareness about water safety.”

He will provide all the equipment for the event, currently planned for between 10am and noon.

Entry is £10 per team. All the proceeds will go to Sidmouth Lifeboat.
