Leeds to Liverpool

Due to the channel crossing looking like its not going to be happening until July now. I have now booked a date to kayak the Leeds - Liverpool Canal. I intend  to complete this challenge over five days starting on 25th June until 30th June. Weh Hey, the weather cannot stop this one :))))))

I am learning that the most difficult part of this challenge to cross the English channel is actually getting to attempt the bloody challenge.

This weather just is not behaving and unfortunately after getting prepared its off again and the safety company are not available until July now.

So, on a positive I can now get some miles in and I am considering doing the Leeds to Liverpool challenge possibly before the channel crossing now..

Next week is not looking very good weather wise, the forecast is for high winds so unfortunately it looks like it is not going to happen. I have had a couple of sessions out in the kayak but no way near enough, hopefuly this delay will allow me to get a few sea miles in..

2 weeks to go

Fantastic weekend on the Taffy Dakar, glad to say no injuries :)

Very concious of the fact I now need to get some miles in the kayak, very busy as work so going to try and get out on the canal (not ideal as I could do with some wave practise) tonight and again on Thursday night.

I would love to get a 20 miler in before the challenge.. head down and lets get paddling...
