September 2014

4 weeks today we will be taking on our big challenge for 2014.  We aim to SUP the full 100km length of the Caledonian Canal in 3 days, starting on the 2nd of October.  The direction of travel is in the hands of the Gods.

Yesterday I got out and did another 26km on Clunie.  I’m glad to say that this was very little wind, and I managed to complete the paddle in 4 hours dead, including 3 fuel-stops (sandwiches, chocolate, and juice).  However, the best fuel-stop is the one when it is all over and I get to drink the Scottish amber nectar – Irn Bru.  Who knew you could get energy from gurrderrs!?!


These sponsors have been a tremendous help in supplying kit and support for my challenges.
