  • Swimming - Corryvreckan Gulf - Extreme Dreams
    able to come along and watch the swim Patrick gave me the contact details of a local RIB owner Tony Gill I contacted him to see if he would be interested in coming along and much to my delight he was very keen It turned out that Tony has been involved in many of the Corryvreckan swims acting as a support boat so knew exactly what we were planning I found out later that Tony was also the man behind a video I had repeatedly watched on YouTube called Corryvreckan Challenge Deano following Andy s throw bag The swim was set for Sunday the 7th of August and everyone involved met up just outside Ardfern on the 6th The weather that day had started off very nice but by tea time the clouds had come in and there was a spot of rain Patrick Cathy and headed out for a wee paddle while Rhona and Stumpy put our tent up Sorry Rho I hadn t gone out for a paddle just to get out of putting the tent up Patrick had suggested that to make the whole trip more fun as well as swimming the Corryvreckan Gulf we should paddle the 5km out to it and then after the swim we should paddle the 5km back again As I had not done any sea kayaking since 2009 a refresher was called for Around 08 30 on the 7th Patrick and I jumped into a two man kayak and Cathy climbed into her single Paddy s Paddlers would follow on behind us Rhona along with our 2 friends Derek and Linda and Stumpy made their way down to meet Tony with his RIB Moon Raker The paddle would take us around 45 minutes to an hour Moon Raker would do it in around 10 minutes As the swim was based around slack tide this meant we would be paddling towards the Gulf hitting the fast moving tide head on This made for an interesting paddle Fortunately Patrick could read the water very well and he was able to take us through the better parts of it When we were about 2km from the whirlpool Patrick said that he could see it As we were just a few feet above the water level this meant that the whirlpool must have been pretty big Deano coming up for air After the tough paddle we made our way to Jura and I was dropped off I had to clamber up a sloping cliff for about 10 metres but then found a nice wee gap to settle down into I waited there for 10 minutes whilst Patrick and Cathy secured their kayaks around the corner and made their way over to me Whilst waiting there I heard the RIB and then Paddy s Paddlers arrive I also listened to some seals swimming around Obviously wondering what was going on A few minutes after Cathy and Patrick arrived with me Tony shouted from the RIB that

  • that I didn t think I would get another chance this year as Rhona was very busy with work and the water temperature would be starting to drop again He told me that he d be keen to help me in 2 weeks time as he had some time off work 2 weeks would also give my injuries some time to heal So on the 20th of September Patrick and I headed off to Location X We mountain biked in for 7km and stashed the bikes in the same location as last time I then pointed out the route we took whilst Patrick matched it against the map The route I was describing from memory would certainly get us to Location X but would be 6km hiking without a path and then finish with a near 500m vertical climb On closer examination Patrick was able to find a much better route which meant getting back on our bikes again and heading 3km back on the route we had just come We would then turn left and bike for another 4km before stashing the bikes there At that point we would have a much clearer footpath in to Location X and back out which would save us time and effort over the whole trip Due to my sight problems I am fairly slow by foot but can push things a bit faster on my bike This means the bike takes a real hammering hitting rocks tree stumps etc but buying a new front wheel every now and then is better than what could happen to my feet and ankles Patrick cycled just ahead of me over some very technical ground Well technical for a blind guy The path was narrow strewn with rocks and very steep in places There were also many run offs which cut right across the path and could not be avoided These are used to help direct the rain water running off the hills and prevent the path from being washed away Patrick had to continually give me instructions on how to bike through them e g keep right steep out or middle and shallow or the worst ones enter left cross to right steep out quick left Try working that out in a fraction of a second But he did a sterling job After 4km of this technical stuff it was time to stash the bikes and start walking The walk was only for 4km but it was mostly uphill The weather hadn t been too bad A bit of sunshine followed by a few drops of rain However when we started to gain some height the wind really started up Over the last few hundred metres the rain joined in By the time we hit the shores of Location X the wind and rain were almost storm force There were fast moving waves being blown by the wind and things didn t look good for a several hundred metre swim In fact they looked extremely

  • Extreme Dreams - Come see the blind man at play!
    better Then four years ago it started to become really grim and I was told that ultimately I would be completely blind It could be tomorrow it could be years down the road It is just one of those things Then when I was working at the prison s custody office it failed badly and I decided that we had to do something now Rhona and I are getting married in May and we had planned a world trip after that but with time running out we decided we would do it now and I would cram in as much as I could Dean s determination saw them fly first to India and from there across the border to Nepal They started with seven days rugged trekking in the foothills of the Himalayas climbing to 4 000 metres That completed the pair joined a white water rafting expedition on the River San Cosey in Nepal Dean said We capsized once The rest of the party clung on to the boat but I was swept away I just let myself go I curled into a ball and as I couldn t see all the rocks flashing by I was quite happy They picked me up about 100 metres further down river The white water was classed as grade four with the worst being grade five so it was quite exciting From Nepal the pair flew to Thailand just hours before most of the Nepalese Royal Family were assassinated and spent three days in the deep jungle where they met Tina the barmaid at Exeter s Double Locks pub We did not know her said Dean but she overheard us telling somebody else we were from Exeter and she piped up Where in Exeter and introduced herself A flight to Australia and a 24 hour stopover was the prelude to an eight week stay in the heartland of extreme sports and pastimes New Zealand Dean who already holds the record as the only registered blind person in the world to have done a helicopter bungee jump from 400 metres up felt at home immediately First he performed a bungee jump from the highest spot possible in the world a cable car swinging 134 metres above a river canyon Dean said People say it is quite scary but in some ways it is worse if you cannot see where you are going I couldn t see the bottom of course but other sensations are heightened If that was not enough Dean then took on one of the toughest and most dangerous of extreme sports white water sledging He explained You get on a boogie board like a very small surf board and shoot over rapids and waterfalls some of them up to seven metres high There followed some relatively docile kayaking followed by snowboarding They made me have a bib around my neck saying blind skier so everybody got out of my way said Dean I seemed to go over a lot of
