That's a long paddle Barry!
LOL! About ten years ago I remember posting on here some madcap idea about getting hold of a fast rowing boat and rowing across France from the channel to the Med using the canals and river systems for charity. Totally bonkers. I once did a sponsored row in my early 20s from Fort William to Inverness single handed in an old wooden Norwegian clinker built rowing boat including Loch Ness (about 70 miles I think in total) so I guess I thought "how hard can it be"
