Canary Wharf to Host Free SUP Event in September Ahead of World Championship Tour Stop In 2022 – 27.08.21

The APP World Tour, together with Canary Wharf Group, is hosting a free two-day SUP spectacle in the heart of London. The event will feature SUP yoga clinics, taster lessons and fun racing all day on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 September, inviting all workers, visitors and residents alike to get in the water and get active in Canary Wharf.

The event will feature SUP Yoga Clinics in the morning from 7.30am-10.30am, followed by paddling initiation and coaching sessions from 11.30am-2.30pm on both days and from 3.30pm until 6.30pm on Thursday 23 September. The two-day event will then be wrapped up with fun racing and relays on the evening of Friday 24 September.

The lessons will be hosted by APP Qualified Instructors, and with a guest appearance from one of the World Championship Tour’s greatest Stars, the sessions will provide an all-access introduction to the wonders of Stand-Up Paddling in the unique Canary Wharf environment.

These clinics will be offered free of charge thanks to Canary Wharf Group, but pre-event booking is required to reserve a spot in one or more of the hour-long slots available. Each hour will feature a welcome talk by an APP Pro, followed by either a SUP Yoga clinic or paddling session to either introduce you to the sport, or for those already initiated, provide some guidance on technique and form.
