Sunday July 2rd- 2017 – Midday – 12 Noon
WHATS THE “PADDLE SOMETHING UNUSUAL?
The “Paddle Something Unusual” is the perfect opportunity for those of you less stable in the community to exercise their creativity and join in the Paddle. You could be a business promoting itself and your CSR program, a group of friends, a pub or a football club etc
In previous years we’ve had everything from aeroplanes to cranes, from a bed to a shed – the only guidelines are to make it as ridiculous (but safe) as possible, raise plenty of money – and have a spectacularly good laugh doing it!
- it has to be paddled manually
- anyone who is taking part in the water to be able to swim a minimum of 100 metres in the sea
- have a minimum crew of two (no maximum limit)
- absolutely no propellers or engines of any kind other than fuelled by spinach (and beans)
- you must ensure that it is seaworthy and capable of making it! That’s it!
What to expect On the Day
Because of obvious parking restrictions; You will be expected to deliver your vessel down to Hove Lawns early on the Sunday morning (2nd July) between 7 & 9am. All entries will be on display to the public for ridicule – sorry admire – before the event.
You will then take your sponsor form and monies collected to the registration tent
We should set off at 12 Noon dependent upon weather and tides.
You will be responsible for your own delivery/collection.

Oft Asked Questions
There is a fee of £25 per team for registration – this goes to charity
There is no minimum amount to raise though of course the more the better – the sponsor form should be available at http://www.paddleroundthepier.com/_pdf/Sponsor-Form.pdf
Please do not raise money for any other than the annually selected charities – if you would like to suggest a charity for next year please contact us after this year’s event
For every £5 raised you will receive Raffle tickets and the prizes are superb.
There is no vehicle access to the beach/ prom after 9AM on the Sunday for safety reasons so, unless you are able to carry the craft from the peace statue then we suggest you drive down early. You can leave he craft on the beach once it is there.
All crafts must be removed safely on the Sunday of the event.
There will be very strong water safety on shore and offshore during the event.
We strongly advise that all participants wear some personal flotation devices.
Please do not get on your craft before you are past the breaking waves ( should there be any ) and also dismount your craft before returning to shore – there is a danger in that zone especially with heavy craft.
