I am looking for a female adventurer who is willing to do a world first and kayak from Dover to the Black Sea which would also break two world records (longest kayak trip by two females and most distance covered by two females in a kayak over 24 hours - as this doesn't have a record yet!). The route will involve crossing the English channel and a series of rivers and canals in around 8 countries including the Danube and passing cities such as Prague and Vienna.
But most importantly is why I am doing this. I want to raise money for cancer research as my father unfortunately passed away when I was in my last year of school almost two years ago due to cancer and my best friend is still battling after four years of treatment. I also would like to raise awareness for women in sport and for the waterways environment during my crossing. These three things are very important to me and something I am very keen to represent in what will be a tough challenge!
Therefore, I am looking for a female who is willing to train for this adventure and do 60k a day in a double kayak to accomplish this trip in around 13 weeks starting around May 2018.
No skills really needed, kayaking or river experience would be ideal though and to be fit enough for the challenge and doesn't mind camping. Mostly it's just enthusiasm and an interest in the causes I will be representing in this non commercial adventure.
EDIT: Kate has been in touch to say she has had an overwhelming amount of interest for this adventure and has now found her team!
