This Girl Can stand up and paddle
- 29 July 2015
As the sports and activities co-ordinator at Romsey Rapids Sports Complex, Sue Perkins is used to getting her feet wet. But she’s taken her relationship with water to a whole new level with an unusual personal challenge, which saw her paddling her way around a tiny picturesque island off the Devonshire coast.
Sue, who’s 55 and has worked at the Rapids for 17 years, has achieved a new high by paddle boarding (that’s standing up and steering a raft like platform with a long oar) around Burgh Island, a tidal island which gets cut off from the mainland when the tide comes in.
