The Mayflower 400 Drake's Island Paddle

Around 100 people are expected to take part in the Drake's Island Paddle on Sunday, 12 July in aid of the Chestnut Appeal.

Organised in partnership with South West SUP, the paddleboard event will start on Firestone Beach with a paddle out and around Drake's Island, before entrants make their way over to the arch in the Royal William Yard.

It offers a fantastic opportunity to paddle around Drake's Island with full safety support AND help raise money for men’s health across Devon and Cornwall.

The cost of entry is £20 if you have your own board, and £30 if you wish to hire a board from South West SUP. For more information and to book your place, visit

The event takes place on the same day as the Drake's Island Swim. Find out more here.
