In memory of Alastair Randall

Our friend Alastair Randall died suddenly at home on 11th August. He left behind a partner Vikki and two wonderful young children, Sophie aged 8 and Ethan aged 3. To lose your father at such a young age is tragic, so we’re organising a competition to raise some money for this young family after their tragic loss.

It’s simple to enter, please just send £5 to paypal via friends and family (Elon Musk and his chums really don’t need any more money), to along with your answer to the following question:

How many blades are there on a kayak paddle?

A) Two

B) Haddock

c) Eleventy Three

Alternatively, you can click the link at the bottom of this post or you can enter in store, with cold hard cash.

All correct entries will be entered into a draw to win one of the following prizes:

A North Shore Atlantic RM Sea Kayak, you can choose which size – generously donated by

Valley Sea Kayaks

A Peak UK Drysuit, you can choose the model and size – generously donated by

There are some great prizes here and they will all be won. We’re hoping to be adding to these in the next few days and weeks, so watch this space.

Please, please support this, the money won’t bring him back, but it will help secure the future for the family of a generous, gentleman paddler who was taken from them and us his friends far too soon.

Thank you for your support, the draw will be held on 1st November after the Paddle for Al at Mile End Mill, Llangollen.

Please don’t forget to add a message with your answer to the question AND if you send using Friends and Family they will receive every penny
