My Adventure Story

Welcome to my attempt at Lands End to John O'Groats by kayak.

Please have a look at for the full story, including a day-by-day blog and live tracking. 

The Challenge

To paddle from Sennen Cove in the far SW of Cornwall to John O'Groats in the far NW of Scotland in less than 45 days, whilst still maintaining an ability to move and hold polite conversation afterwards! This is a personal challenge that's been milling around for a while, and as I approach my mid life crisis years, 2013 seemed the right time to make an attempt, (and it will be significantly cheaper than a soft top sports car). The trip will be self supported so I'll be carrying all my equipment and supplies with me.

As far as I'm aware, I don't think this trip has been completed before as a stand alone trip, rather than as part of a circumnavigation. I may find out why when I get going...


This track shows the route so far, starting Lands End, 19th April.  Where am I today?  see here for Live Tracking
