I am indebted to the following people and businesses who have generously chosen to sponsor me with much needed equipment and support.
Without your generosity my expedition would have been more difficult to plan and undertake.
Yellow Brick Tracking
YB Tracking have kindly sponsored a YB3 unit for my use throughout my journey. This will enable people to follow my progress at hourly intervals every day I am paddling.
Sea Kayaking Scotland
I am hugely indebted to Julian and Rosy of Sea Kayaking Scotland who have very generously sponsored my sea kayak, a Nigel Dennis designed Explorer. Not only this they have provided much needed advice and moral support during my planning phase of my journey.
This trip would be so much more challenging without a good set of paddles. I am indebted to Celtic Paddles for sponsoring me two sets of high quality paddles. This is an incredibly generous gesture.
I have been generously sponsored my clothing and buoyancy aid (PFD) for my journey by Kokatat. I keep telling folks that I have never been so well dressed (and dry at the end of the day)!
Sea Kayak Oban
I am hugely indebted to Stuart and Cathy of Sea Kayak Oban where they have offered me incredible support sourcing the many items of equipment that I require for my journey. Not only this, they have been incredibly generous with their time when I have dropped by their shop to ask for advice. For any sea kayaker in the UK, this is the premier sea kayaking shop in Britain.
Art and Sea
Leonie of Art and Sea has provided me with invaluable support and advice in the lead up to me journey. She is well placed in the sea kayaking fraternity here in Scotland and was able to point me in the direction of possible sponsors and technical support. She has also generously sponsored all the promotional imagery on my kayak and the name of my kayak too.
