St’Ives Bay Celtic Cup Event Cancelation
It is with great regret that event organiser, Glenn Eldridge, has cancelled this years edition after an almost uninterrupted run of 14 years.
“This is not something that I have taken lightly nor made on the fly – I have wrestled with this for some time this year after receiving devastating news relating to the health of my Mother who has had declining health over recent years”. Although obvious, the past couple years have highlighted for many, the true value of our health “ironically, I also have an undiagnosed chronic heart problem Doctors have been investigating – I realised that at times like these refocusing upon life’s priorities are far more important”.
It is hoped that by making an early call rather than struggling on that competitors are able to make alternative arrangements with minimal financial cost for all of our ocean ski, sup and outrigger paddlers.
In terms of the GBSUP National Series event the team are working hard with an alternative event host to run the second of technical race series. Further announcements will be made shortly on this from the GBSUP team. Similarly, the GB Ocean Ski group will make announcements regarding possible alternative events shortly.
“Once again, we sincerely apologies for the disruption this will have caused and that we hope that others can appreciate why we have made this very difficult decision – keep well everyone and get out side and paddle more”.
