MS sufferer sets off on SUP expedition

Sonja Jones, a Multiple Sclerosis sufferer and Board Member for Canoe Wales, sets off today on a mission to circumnavigate the three islands of Malta as part of a team of four. With winds reaching 30 knots right now, and waves currently several feet high, this isn’t just a quiet paddle in the warm waters of the Mediterranean.

Sonja is hoping to complete the expedition with three watersports instructors as part of her physical therapy and to demonstrate just how accessible Standup paddleboarding is.

Props and best wishes
to her. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things is always an inspiration.
