Newquay harbours free sunset music session
The sixth Joe Way Paddle for Life lands four Cornish bands for it’s Sunset Session on the beach on Thursday 6th June at Newquay Harbour.
The annual charity paddle has a great musical sunset session on the beach with Ben Sutcliff from “The string Peoples Foundation”, Cornwall’s “The Straw Dogs”, Newquay’s Steel appeal who are a 10 piece steel drum band and a local Newquay band to finish off in the rowing club.
The charity fun Paddle starts at 4pm and at around 6.30pm Titan the Robot will arrive to entertain the crowds, which is all being broadcasted live on-line.
Matt Way Joe’s dad said “We are looking forward to the live music this year as the event keeps getting bigger, we are so grateful for the support that we have”.
The event starts at 4pm and the last registration and time in the water is 6.30pm so there is plenty of time to arrive when people have finished work, Titan the Robot and the lifeguard race is just after 6.30pm. Boards are provided with lots of help from Newquay Surf Life Savers so all you need is your wetsuit or trunks, swimmers, SUP’s and canoes are welcome.
Toddlers banners hits nine times around the world
Joe’s small banner has already travelled the equivalent of nine times around the world clocking up 362,973km around the world and has been snapped with singer James Morrinson, boxer Frank Bruno and some of the worlds top surfers. Team Joe are now looking to get the figure up 400,000 km which is the equivalent of travelling from the earth to the moon.
Joe’s small light weight banner has been taken under water, up mountains, out to sea by surfers and strapped to Joe’s dad when he did a parachute jump.
Rob Barber commented “I was stoked to support the Joe Way Paddle for Life during the Morocco trip and urge other's to support the campaign and hit the 400,000km travelled target before the winter is out. We will certainly be doing our bit by carrying the banner and sharing the message on all of this winters bodyboard coaching holidays”.
Perranporth Signs who are a big sponsor of the appeal have just donated more banners which are ready to go global. If you are going away and would like to take part in this challenge, please call Matt Way on 07761079454 to get your banner on the global map. To see the global map Click Here
Joe’s Paddle has a touch of the Hawaiian
The 2012 event will see the addition of a stand up paddle relay which will consist of 15 teams of four paddlers of all abilities paddle the 1km course.
The event starts at 4pm and the last registration and time in the water is 6.30pm so there is plenty of time to arrive when people have finished work, Titan the Robot and the lifeguard race is just after 6.30pm. With the return of Titan and live bands for free it’s another great showcase for Newquay.
Hawaiian Kai Lenny and SUP world champion said “SUP’s are great fun and have a huge following in the south west of England so it had to become part of Joe’s paddle, I’ve meet Joe’s family and would encourage people to support this great UK event”.
The Joe Way appeal was supported by the Watergate SUP competition run by the British stand up paddle association last year and Matt Way said “we are stoked to have this new section in the paddle for life”.
The winners of the RNLI Joe Way memorial paddle was won by North Fistral and the 1km paddle relay was won by Newquay Activity Center who will be both hoping to retain their titles at the 2013 event.
