Paddle in Pink 2021

Paddle in Pink Inspiration

In October for breast cancer awareness month we try to end our season with a ‘Pink Paddle’.

This is to raise awareness of our  activities in the local community and to promote breast cancer awareness.

In the past we have had ‘friendly’ races with a team from English Lakes Hotels staff, visited Wateredge at the northern end of Windermere, had ‘Pink Teas’ and occasionally been defeated by wind and rain to escape indoors and put our dragons to sleep. The pandemic measures defeated us last year.

For newer members seeking inspiration, look at the photos below as you decide on what to wear for our Pink Paddle 2021 weather permitting.

This will be our last paddle of 2021. The season seems to have gone so quickly but we have been lucky to paddle so many times thanks to the hard work of our trustees and those volunteers who kept us safe and also our helms who worked hard to ensure plenty of paddling sessions. Huge ‘Thanks’ to all these members and also to all the other fellow paddlers who made the season such fun as we returned to paddling.

Our pink paddle was cancelled due to bad weather but we held a flower ceremony.
