Kayakers – They Did It!

Brilliant photos of the final day as the kayakers arrived in Exeter at the end of the Challenge… was great to be there and share the excitement of the final day. I met the whole team on Friday night, they have had a wonderful adventure, they are 4 amazing guys who have had a tremendous adventure, they are all inspiring, none more so that Chris Brown-Martin, who is an Alpha sufferer. But they also had a great team behind them, driving around Cornwall & Devon, in vans with trailers, with spare kayaks on them, vans packed with camping gear and food, ChrisB-M and Chris Westlake had their partners driving, Steve’s wife & and three children, were in a camper, the children enjoying being part of the team, helping with the kayaks and washing off the gear each night and generally keeping the guy’s moral up, they even got in kayaks and joined in part of the final paddle into Exeter. Matts parents were also along with support, as was Lynn Whitworth during the first week, she sadly had to return to work the second week. Chris B-M’s dad even joined them for part of there journey along the Devon coast as he sailed back with his wife from the Scilly Isles. A great team effort and memories to last a lifetime. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU, WELL DONE, WE ARE PROUD OF YOU ALL
