by thecelticcrossing in Newquay

A group of driven and highly dedicated athletes intend to set about achieving world recognition by bringing to life The Celtic Crossing Europe’s only Island to Island ocean race of this distance!

The course is set from the isles of Scilly to Sennen Cove, the first beach around the corner from Land’s End, mainland Uk.. Make no mistake, this is an epic voyage which is going to require a level of skill, endurance and ocean knowledge only found in elite watermen and women who have spent their lives preparing themselves for a challenge just like this!

Between the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago situated 28 miles / 50km south west off Lands End lies some of the most dangerous and busiest stretches of ocean in the world… On the 18th May 2014 the athletes will attempt to set five world records for the fastest man powered crossings between the Scilly’s and Sennen Beach. 

The 6 Athletes will make the crossing on : Stand up paddleboard (SUP’S) Race specific surfboard (lying down and knee paddling) and Ocean surf kayak’s (2 team’s in double kayaks men’s and women’s team) and one solo Kayak paddler..

We are looking to raise £4,000 to cover logistics and film production.. If we are lucky enough to make the £4,000 we want to continue raising funds to make financial donations to the Wave Wroject and Paddle for Life, two brilliant charities who are based in Cornwall.

Hopefully with your kind pledges we can donate a nice amount to each.. The first is the and the second the All the hard work, dedication and energy the front runners of these charities have put in to get the charities where they are today will inspire all paddlers to dig that little deeper on this mission of a paddle! 

With your guy's support we want to donate sum's of money that really do help boost each charity giving other's less fortunate a chance to enjoy the natural therapy the ocean offer's! 

We'd love you to get involved and be part of a community around the Celtic Crossing, so much so in return for your pledge there are loads of awesome rewards you get in return. 

Cheers The Celtic Crossing Team
