“The Great British Paddle 2020”.

Our official charitable adventurer and fundraiser Jordan Wylie is on another major expedition and flying the family flag (literally from his support boat) for Eton Harris. The last 4 months have been very testing for us all as the world tries to come to terms with the aftermath and ongoing management of COVID-19. Although we all hope it will be business as usual soon, we must all get now used to new ways of working and also be very grateful for the things in our life that we often take for granted.

As you may know, we were supposed to be running through the 10 coldest places on the planet in 2020 as part of our fundraising mission on the Horn of Africa where together with Eton Harris we have been trying to inspire hope through education to child refugees in Djibouti from Yemen and Somalia respectively, all of which have been affected by war and conflict. Although Jordan will return to his polar running challenge when international air space opens fully (hopefully soon), we decided we needed a challenge closer to home to inspire those young people in the U.K. who have been locked up in their family houses for the last 4 months. We are delighted to bring to you, THE GREAT BRITISH PADDLE! An incredible world first and world record attempt to circumnavigate the whole of Great Britain on a Standup Paddleboard in aid of Frontline Children.

Day 63 - 26th September

Day 63: Today has been spent getting Jordan's paddleboard patched up, it's currently still drying out at Dale Sailing who have kindly done the repair work and provided a free mooring and fuel for the support boat for the night. Jordan will be up at 01.30am to sand it down and get on the move. The team have met some incredibly kind people and companies in the South West Wales, the very best of British in fact. The long awaited trio to get back across to Ireland seems to be showing astomorrow. Jordan is determined to get across the Irish Sea tomorrow and will do everything he can to make it happen. We hope by tomorrow evenings daily post we can give you all some good news. The water is getting colder and the winds are getting stronger but morale remains high throughout the team despite the daily challenges.

"I am super grateful to the team at Eton Harris. They have been like a family to me and the fact I get to work with them every day is a real privilege. They are the reason I am able to visit so many schools, cadet units and youth organisations and share my experiences to help others. I will fly their flag proudly as always.” Jordan
