One of the Last Great British Adventures…….
They did it! On Friday 13th June 2014 the Beeline Britain team completed the first ever straight-line journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats, a total of 1,100km.
The Beeline Britain team, which was supported by Prince Harry’s Endeavour Fund, kayaked, cycled, mountain biked and hiked their way across the UK, completing two record breaking sea crossings on route, including the longest open sea kayak crossing in UK waters; 34 hours of non-stop kayaking over 200km.
The team of four included a serving RAF Aircrew, a retired Army Captain and Team GB Paralympian, a professional kayak coach and the first Welsh woman to summit Mount Everest. Meet the team here.
As The Crow Flies is the award-winning documentary film produced about their journey. Buy, rent or purchase As The Crow Flies DVD here.
The journey was completed in 28 days and was reported on in both national and regional press, on radio, television and online.
