Stand Up Paddle

Up for the challenge? Interested in meeting new people?

Stand Up Paddle 

Our Stand Up Paddle challenge, is taking place in Sligo this August, to raise funds and awareness for Focus Ireland. Challengers will paddle a 5km circuit from Doorly Park near Sligo Town up the Garavogue River to the picturesque Lough Gill before making their way around Bernard’s Island and back to Doorly Park. This is a challenge event and not a race. It is suitable for anyone with a good attitude and keen sense of adventure.

Calling all Companies Or Groups:

Our Stand Up Paddle is suitable for team building activities or just general craic with friends, with each ‘Paddle’ allowing for a team of 15 to go out together at any one time. So whether it’s your work, group or club, get together this will be a great day of fun. Contact us for more information.
