British Canoeing #ShePaddles Ambassadors are chosen yearly to promote the fantastic variety and benefits of paddlesport.
The ten ambassadors are chosen to represent paddlesport at a range of different levels and in a variety of disciplines. All ten women have fantastic and unique stories about why they paddle. One thing they all have in common is their passion for getting outdoors and sharing their love of the sport with others.
