Old boy Chris Bertish (1987 leaver) will attempt the first ever, solo, SUP trans-Atlantic crossing at the end of 2016. Paddling the equivalent of a marathon every day for 120 days, over 4500 miles (7500 km), Chris will start his voyage in Morocco, paddle to the Canary Islands, across the Atlantic Ocean, towards the leeward islands of the Caribbean before finally ending the journey in Florida. He will battle the currents, weather, creatures of the deep, fatigue, exhaustion and the unknown.
For the past 5 years, Chris has devoted every spare moment to planning every detail of this massive project.
In order to assist him with some much-needed funds for this project, Chris will be holding a fundraiser evening, with music by Ard Matthews, a talk by Chris Bertish himself, and a live auction by Deon Bing. The evening promises to be a great one, so please go along and support Chris. Get your tickets now at http://bit.ly/2bKVdAH
