The training weekend 5-7 May 2023 will be in the Lake District.  Further information will be provided on this weekend soon.


The actual expedition in terms of daily distance, the total expedition route is 85km which means you’ll be paddling between 15km & 20km per day.  Where possible you’ll also use improvised sailing techniques in rafted canoes which can increase the speed in which distances are travelled.  You should expect to be on the water for around six to seven hours per day during the expedition.  This will be discussed further during the training weekends.
