The Wittering Charity Paddle Race – Sunday 28th July 2013 – 2XS/X-Train, with Shore Surf Club are organising a charity paddle race to raise money for The Sussex Snowdrop Trust.

The annual charity race starts 1pm- from Shore Road (on the beach at East Wittering), and ends at West Wittering Windsurf Club and competitors may use surfboards, SUPs or kayaks (prizes and medals for the winner of each category COMBINED with highest sponsorship money raised). Last season 2012 we raised £2450. For 2013 if the wind is over 15 knots we will run the event from West Wittering beach rather than start from shore road –check 2XS /Shore Surf Club websites the day before or call 01243 513077.

The Charity Paddle race has been running for more than 9 years and this years event includes a FREE event tee shirt, BBQ included in the entry fee of £15.00.

We have safety cover on the water from Martin Gillam PUMA safety (CDC), David Piper and West Wittering Estate Lifeguards and West Wittering Windsurf Club.

This year there will be live music from the Chichester Music Academy from around 2pm who will have live acts playing while the BBQ is running at the finish line at West Wittering Estate.

We are hoping to raise lots of money for The Snowdrop Trust who care for terminally sick children and their families and we believe need all our support.

If you want to come along and watch the event West Wittering Beach will be the best place to watch the finalists – you have to pay the parking fees to the car park and it will be located close to the windsurf club when you come into the beach (West Wittering Estate/Beach, West Wittering, P020 8AU)

We will be having a BBQ – 2 pm for non competitors and competitors and will be accepting donations for the BBQ and appreciation of the good music again for The Snowdrop Trust – organised by the crack BBQ team Dicky and Sandy Dale and Mr and Mrs Chipps.

Sunday 28th July 2013 Registration: 11.30am Beach front the end of Shore Road, East Wittering (or if its windy we will register at West Wittering beach)

The Race Starts at 1pm (should take 20-40 minutes) Entry fee: £15 (plus minimum sponsorship amount of £15) Bring all sponsorship money to the event. Cash please or cheques made out to The Snowdrop Trust
