Will You Be at London (Battersea) Heliport on Easter Sunday (Apr 4th)?

Well if you are there around 09:00 in the morning, please keep an eye out on the river and if you see an old ginger bloke and a young dark haired chap, paddling an orange kayak and looking rather tired then please spend a moment to give us a wave and a cheer!

If you see us there, we will have paddled for about 24 hours and have completed 120 miles of the 125 miles from Devizes to Westminster. Last year 182 teams set off on the non-stop race and 134 finished so we are well aware of how much this is going to hurt!

We are doing this to raise funds for the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust, if you would like to know more, our blog is available Here, but change the asterices to "b logspot" without the space

Ah, looks like that link is not allowed. If you want to see it, search this in Google - tonyandstevesmadpaddle.

Senior Pilot, if this is a problem please let me know and I will remove the thread.

Hopefully we will see some of your cheery faces on the morning, have a good Easter.

Tony Stevens and Steve Day

The blog IS available - try replacing the asterisks in the URL above with "b l o g s p o t" (naturally without the spaces) - I think it's filtered because they're an excellent source of spam.

Thanks nr. Steve and I are dead chuffed having completed the DW in 25hr 42mn 35s. So far 2500 raised for childhood eye cancer trust. Good to bump into Greg Manning and teamate who stormed past us at Reading and completed in 21 hr 49 mn 01s- stunning effort!

We waved at Battersea but you were busy with Harrods S76 at the time.
