Sudbury to the Sea Solo Kayak
Raising money for Bipolar UK
The Challenge
24.5 solo kayak along the River Stour taking equipment for an overnight camp halfway.
The Charity
I've chosen this charity because I have bipolar disorder and having had a lot of support from Bipolar UK I feel it is time to give something back now that I am well.
The Training
I am a confident kayaker and have been kayaking for many years. I have kayaked sections of the Stour but not the full Sudbury-Cattawade section. The challenge is not only to paddle the 12 miles per day but to be able to stow sufficient light weight equipment in a small kayak for food and camping equipment. Mountain Warehouse Clacton have been extremely helpful in assisting me to achieve this.
