Roy and I needed a big challenge and the Great Glen Paddle seemed to fit the bill - 57 miles of paddling on canals, lochs and rivers from Fort William to Inverness. We entered the event, and then realised just how hard it was going to be...
We have to deal with different boats and paddles, improve our technique, fit in big volumes of training, arrange support logistics and then, finally, the easy bit, 12 hours of non stop paddling across Scotland.
Without doubt, this is a tough challenge and we are hoping you will help make our efforts worthwhile by donating to Cancer Reasearch UK, a good cause that really needs no introduction.
We have chosen to collect funding through JustGiving because it is simple, fast and totally secure and once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity.
