SUP'n SIP : Pharaoh's Island
A leisurely, social-SUP for competent paddlers along a picturesque and open stretch of the Thames to the newly refurbed Bridge Hotel at Chertsey. The aim is to paddle as a group, make new friends and have a chat along the way. It's not a race and no one gets left behind. Oh, and have a pint too!

About the Event
We are launching from the green open area opposite Pharaoh's Island at Shepperton (ie. 500m or so upstream from Shepperton Lock). You will need to approach the Dockett Eddy Lane end and please make sure you park tight on the RIGHT hand side. There is limited parking at the lock itself but then a short walk/SUP up the meeting point.
From there it will be a 1.7mile paddle upstream to the The Bridge Hotel at Chertsey bridge where we'll grab a drink and possible a bite to eat. After that it's a 'downstreamer' back to the cars for around 9pm hopefully (no car park to worry about this time!)
You are welcome to bring your own SUP or hire one from us for the occasion if you don't have one.
