How Will It Work
The guys will use a ‘tag’ team format, 24 hours a day for 5 straight days – each paddler getting on the board for an hour each shift, followed by a recuperation period of 3 hours on an accompanying yacht. For medical reasons Brown will not be paddling at night, the rest of the team will cover his shifts – Brown will make up the time during daylight hours.
At times it is going to be impossible to make headway against the tide/wind. In these instances a waypoint will be made on the chart plotter and shelter will be sought until the tide slackens or the weather system has passed. We will then return to the waypoint and continue.
