The Kayak Challenge team have announced the following:
“Saturday 10th August – Bude. The team is aiming to be at the canal area of Bude at 8am. The tide times mean that the paddlers hope to get going between 9 and 9.30am.”
“The Plan for the Charity Paddle is – Get as many paddlers at Bude Harbour as possible for 9:30am – The Mass paddle out will be at 10:am – press coverage and a Heli-video machine will follow the group. Those who want to stay near Bude can then break off from the other paddlers who will then accompany the Charity paddlers to Boscastle. We are hoping that the Bude gig will be there and possible a RIB for safety………If you want to go but have no suitable boat let Steve know – we have access to several boats…..The Challenge- Sea kayaking starting from Bude, Cornwall around the Cornish coast and into Devon waters – sea and river – finishing in Exeter… approx 300miles. Who…. Chris Brown-Martin, Matt Retter, Chris Lake & Steve Carter. When…. Summer 2013. Why…. To raise money for Various Charities – More info to follow.”
Go along and cheer them along.
