  • would be good shall we enter After explaining that the race was over a distance of between 600 and 750km made up in sections of sea swimming road biking mountain biking mountain running and sea kayaking and was done by teams of either 4 or 5 she replied with OK then lets get a team together This was not the response I was expecting but not being the type to turn down a challenge or as some people call me stupid the challenge was taken up and a search began to find a team By January 2005 after a few injuries and changes we had our final team We could not find a sea kayaker so were allowed to enter a 4 person team As I needed a guide for my sections our team was increased to 5 The team were Sally Anne Folland 32 mountain running and road biking Richard Kirkup 36 mountain running and mountain biking Colin Campbell 64 road biking both solo and with me on the tandem mountain biking and some guiding for me in the sea swimming Rhona Dunbar 36 road biking my main pilot on the tandem and mountain running Dean Dunbar me 36 road biking on a tandem and sea swimming Picture courtessy of C Armer Pyro s Yard Picture courtessy of C Armer Pyro s Yard Most of our training began in January February but mine was halted after an ice skating injury in early March This resulted in a couple of cracked ribs and a swollen knee This meant around 3 weeks off training Then back in the swing of things around 6 weeks before the challenge I was rushed to hospital with appendicitis Within 12 hours of arriving at the hospital my appendix was out and the doctor told me that I d be ready for training in around 3 weeks time Sure enough 3 weeks later I was training The Hebridean Challenge was due to start on Monday 4 th July and briefings were to take place on Sunday the 3 rd on the Island of Eriskay To get there on time we took a ferry from Oban on Saturday the 2 nd We then set up camp on the beach The wind was fairly strong when we set the tents up but by early evening this wind had picked up to a Gale Force 10 Out of our 3 tents only one was still up on Sunday morning This was not ours So on Sunday after only a couple of hours sleep we started our preparations for the week ahead The route was given out 7 days earlier to prevent too much reconnaissance We could plan most of the route but were not told about the mystery sections on Monday and Thursday morning until the night before Picture courtessy of C Armer Pyro s Yard Picture courtessy of C Armer Pyro s Yard Now this is when I could bore you silly with a daily run down of

  • we were heading into the wash either the wash wake left behind a passing boat or some good sized waves When wash was called we were to jam ourselves into the cat and get ready for the bump Off meant that the wash was big and that I had to cut the power If I didn t we could end up airborne and tipping over After the safety talk Vee drove us out of the 6 knot speed zone and into the open water Now it was my turn to take control I assumed the position back against one tube feet in the loops on the opposite tube left hand on the throttle and right hand holding on for dear life to the safety line along the side of the Thundercat With a slight rotation of the throttle we were off Starting off very slowly and picking up pace as the day went by By the end of Tuesday we had reached a top speed of 47 mph with me driving Wednesday started off with a few short runs around the estuary and then off into the big water This was going to really put me to the test We were now wearing open face helmets and had our comms in place The plan was to head over to Cowes on the Isle of Wight and get a feel for some lumpy water Vee spotted some good size waves and directed us into them Left right left right off on off on off woosh crash power on We had just hit some massive waves and according to the guys in the safety boat we had come right out of the water landing back down on one corner of the boat They were convinced that we were going over but with Vee s skill he positioned his weight in the right place and we hit the water and were off again as if nothing had happened Wow I found out later that Vee had deliberately directed me into this big water to show me what the boat could do and increase my confidence in both the Thundercat and our combined skills The big day had been planned for Thursday but due to bad weather this was postponed until Friday morning On Friday morning Vee picked Rhona and I up and we headed over to Cowes on the big Cat Ferry We then met up with the others and got ready At around 09 30 we took the Thundercat out for last minute photos etc As well as our white Thundercat there was a black Thundercat and 3 safety boats following us We were about to cover a distance of over 60 miles and estimated it should take between 2 and 3 hours If we could get around in 1 hour 40 minutes that would be amazing At around 10 00 we were all set to go Helmets on comms working stopwatch ready and we were off I grabbed the throttle twisted

  • found on the internet and had planned to do at some time Whilst traveling in New Zealand the mecca for extreme sports I got my chance I had found a book Extreme NZ by Alison Dench that detailed different extreme sports in New Zealand that are available to the public This book said that the guys at Kaitiaki Adventure did white water sledging I phoned them up and told them about my lack of sight This did not put them off instead they took it as a challenge Stevie and Mark came and picked us up from our campsite and drove us in their bus to their centre to get ready Before getting kitted out Mark took me through all of the safety aspects of the sport This included how to travel around tight bends over shallow sections of the river and down waterfalls In the bus there had been a laid back atmosphere but for the next twenty minutes it was very serious These guys took their sport very seriously As with any river the Kaituna has some areas that need more care than others They continually sledge the river and know exactly where the danger spots are When they come across them they throw themselves in and see what happens This sounds crazy but it means that they know exactly how to deal with a situation if somebody gets into difficulty These guys have thrown themselves into the plunge pools at the bottom of waterfalls to see how the body reacts and how to carry out a safe rescue There are not many companies who go this far to ensure client safety After the safety talk it was time to get kitted out As it was the middle of winter I was given a couple of warm layers to wear under my wet suit When I put the wet suit on I felt like the Michelin Man Most winter wet suits are around 5 mm thick This suit was 10 mm On top of this I was given a life jacket gloves fins and a helmet that would not have looked out of place in an American Football game With all this protection I was ready for anything Now it was time to get wet The river we were going down was the Kaituna River This is a very holy Mauri river so a prayer was said before we entered it We had a few practise drills in a still part of the river before embarking on the main trip This included how to enter the water with a dive and how to steer etc The main rule is not to let go of the sledge The sledge offers flotation and protection and with the upcoming trip you wanted as much help as possible After the practise drills it was time to go for the real thing Because it was winter there were no other takers for the trip so our group was made up of 3 staff
