The Joe Way Appeal has been supported by the British Stand-Up Paddle Association at this years championships held at Watergate Bay.

Last year the British Stand Up Paddle Association’s National Championships were truly awesome, with demanding waves and warm sunshine.

Held over the same weekend this year, although the sun shone for most of the weekend, that was the only similarity weather-wise.

2012 was cold, blustery and the surf, on day one, was wild and extremely challenging to say the least. But the conditions, although exacting for the paddlers, did test their skills to the limit.

After a hard days competing in challenging conditions and big surf Richard Marsh and his team held a fundraiser at The Phoenix pub which raised £120.

Richard said ,“My thanks go to O’Neill Wetsuits and Nalu Beads for they generous support with prizes. Top prize being a O’Neill O’Riginal 2mm Long John, which was won by Robin Williams”.

Matt Way, Joe’s dad, said; “We would like to thank everyone who supported this event it’s a great showcase for Cornwall and we really appreciate the donation which will go to CLIC Sargent who are one of the charities we support”.
