Sea Kayakers Keirron Tastagh and George Shaw, from the Isle of Man will circumnavigate Ireland heading in a clockwise direction. Depending upon the weather, the pair will aim to cover up to 50 nautical miles per day, including wild camping along the route, and remaining self-sufficient by carrying all their supplies and safety kit with them.
There are three main aims of the challenge.

- use the trip to promote sea safety,
- inspire others to challenge themselves and encourage their sense of adventure
