SUP Woman of the Year

For the past 14 years Supconnect have held an annual awards contest to highlight the people and products making a difference in the world of Stand Up Paddleboarding.

This year our very own Sarah Thornely, SUPjunkie herself, has been nominated for Woman of the Year.

Many of you will know Sarah from her media coverage of SUP races in the UK and around the world. Sarah brings high doses of energy, enthusiasm, and is always cheering on paddlers. Her passion for the sport has helped generate interest, reach, and connected fans globally to this sport beloved by all of us.

We can't feel more proud of this nomination for her, and see it as a fitting recognition of her talents and dedication.

Sarah writes:

I feel incredibly honoured to have been nominated for the Supconnect Woman of the Year Award and to be on the list with some absolute legends of the sport from here in the UK and Worldwide. Through SUPjunkie, I have met my heroes, interviewed my heroes, and become friends with so many paddlers and those involved in the sport and always try my best to be supportive and showcase their stories and adventures above anything else. I guess what I bring to the party is a little different to the others nominated but we all have the same passion, drive and love for this great sport of ours. The double honour would be to win this award but thank you as always for all the positive support you have given me over the years regardless.
