The Celtic Crossing

Between the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago situated 50km south west off Lands End lies some of the most dangerous and busiest stretches of ocean in the world… On the 17th May 2014 a band of elite Watermen will attempt to set five world records for the fastest man powered crossings between the Scilly’s and Sennen Beach on UK main land. The treacherous currents and sudden changes in weather that occur across this stretch of water, coupled with the fact they will be crossing one of Europe’s crammed shipping lanes will make this one of the most daring open ocean races in the world and the only race between land masses in Europe.

The Athletes

  • Glenn Eldridge
  • Tom Butler
  • Chloe Bunnet
  • Lewis Kirton
  • Tarryn Brown
  • Ollie Shilston

    The Celtic crossing sounds amazing. Would like to get more info.
    How’s this a “race” though?

    This first year is more of a test run and a race against the clock. The idea is to make it into a race next year and subsequent years after that.
