Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p][/p][p]Paddlers:  Olly Hicks and Patrick Winterton[/p][p]We tried this crossing two years ago with Mick Berwick in single kayaks, This time we're going in a double so in theory we never have to stop, other than to answer natures call, and someone is always on the look out for tankers and rigs.  Weather looking good for starting this week and we'd hope to be in Bergen on Saturday20th July. [/p][p]Not expecting any donations until we beat the last effort and cross the meridian![/p][p]You can follow our progress on www.kayaksonshetlandbus.org[/p][p]Thanks[/p][p]Patrick and Olly[/p][p][/p][p] [/p]

Well done guys. I drew up a plan to do this about 50 years ago, using 2 "PBK22" doubles, with spars to link together in emergency ! I am interested in the Shetland Bus and travelled on the ferry from Bergen to Lerwick in 2005 to visit relevant sites.
