First training week - Exmouth

First training week - Exmouth

Neil Heritage - "Bloody hell! Its cold on the toes, isn't it!" 

Getting ready to jump in the cold water to practice a self rescue.

As the training begins, the reality of the challenge becomes more apparent. Perfecting the correct paddle technique, working out the standard operating proceedures and rescue proceedures are all part of this incredible adventure. The team spent a week down in Exmoth for their first training week. A special thank you to Jim Taylor-Ross at Epic Kayaks for his time, equipment and most importantly of all, his tuition.  

The team are planning a trip down the River Thames this summer. 300km 6 days.
