We’re great fans of the small boat Raid races like the Everglades Challenge and the Texas 200, but there is not really much available in the UK for enthusiasts to challenge themselves and their equipment.

We’re interested in gauging interest in something similar based on the south coast of England, perhaps something along the lines of a run from Lyme Regis up to Portsmouth and back, having to round the Isle of Wight in whichever direction you prefer.

We’re thinking we will do some scouting runs during 2021, in the Adventure 600 of course! and see how this might work. We’ll document the routes as we trial them so you can see what we are looking to do.

What classes of boats should we aim for? Mono, multi, kayaks? Maximum length of 6m?

Classes split into <4m, 4m-5m and 5-6m?

All human powered, no engines of course – we wonder what propulsion methods people might use? Oars, yulohs, paddle board paddles, pedal power? Let’s see!

Please click here to email in your thoughts and questions but we have also set up a forum here where you can post your suggestions – do you know any potential launching points or interesting routes? – ask questions and register your interest to get this event underway.

We will be doing it for our own satisfaction regardless of course and hoping that other people will be interested and come along and join us for an Adventure!
