Paddle Against Plastic Pollution

Paddleboarding from Cornwall to Isles of  Scilly for Surfers Against Sewage.

We will be support boat and film crew for this 32 mile Paddle Against Plastic Pollution.

The Ocean needs our help, so let’s try and turn the tide on Plastic Pollution.

A team of ten well known local surfers will be facing up to the challenge, being Mike Lacey, Sam Boex, Will Boex, Ben Skinner, Adam Griffiths, Emily Currie, Jayce Robinson, Alan Stokes, Rich Lacey, and Kelvin Batt.

All share the same passion for the beaches and ocean and have an inner drive to stop the plastic pollution that is plaguing them.

The Challenge

Isles of Scilly

The team are coming together to tackle this mammoth journey on paddle boards which O’Shea have kindly sponsored for the task. Nice one O’Shea! The aim is to raise £5000 for Surfers Against Sewage so they may continue their fantastic work campaigning to keep our oceans and beaches clean.

Weather permitting the crossing will take place around 18 – 20th September. The team will certainly need both tides and wind on their side…

The route – leaving Porthcurno at dawn the team will initially hug the Cornish coast. Then it’s out into the open ocean, heading for the Runnelstone Buoy to avoid the strong currents and tide race along that stretch of sea. By the time the first smudge of Scilly’s eastern Islands appears on the horizon there will be some extremely tired paddlers!

The Problem

Plastic Pollution

Here are some crazy facts and figures to get your heads around why we need to act and act fast!

100 million marine animals die every year due to our plastic contamination of the oceans

Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. That’s more than one million bags every minute.

50% of the plastic that we use, we use only once, and then throw away

Nothing that we use for just two minutes should pollute the ocean for 500 YEARS!

Just Giving

There’s also a video you should watch that has been made for this project. Click here for video

Our part in the project will be the easy one. We’ll be using our Princess 39 Cecienne – recently returned from a voyage to St. Petersburg in Russia, – as support and safety boat for the team and as a platform to gather footage including drone footage of the trip.

Come on folks, it’s a great cause and a vital issue. Please go to Mike’s Just Giving page and make a generous pledge!

Do something positive about plastic pollution…
