Swanage to host Paddleboard European Championship

Just heard that Swanage has been chosen to host  the N1SCO Paddleboard European Championships over the weekend of June 10 and June 11, 2017. Apparently, Swanage was chosen for its sheltered waters, golden sands and town centre full of character. N1SCO is the largest stand-up paddleboard racing class in the UK.

Alex Tobutt from Naish in the UK commented: “Swanage bay is fantastic, sheltered, safe and with a beach that paddlers and their family can enjoy. It really is a postcard spot that has everything we need to run the championships whilst families can also enjoy a weekend on the coast.”

Racing will take place outside The View restaurant and Mowlem Theatre, with spectators along the esplanade getting a grandstand view of the competition. Caroline Finch, chairman of Swanage Town Council tourism committee, said: “We can’t wait to welcome competitors from far and wide for this exciting new event to our lovely town. We are delighted to host this event for 2017.”
