Paddleboarding from Dover to Calais for Great Ormond Street Hospital

Our record-breaking attempt is not just about physical endurance; it's about resilience, gratitude, and paying homage to the institution that has played such a pivotal role in our lives.

Fastest Channel Crossing by Stand-up Paddleboard

We have been granted the opportunity by Guinness World Records to attempt to set the record for the fastest crossing of the English Channel via stand-up paddleboard (SUP).

Our journey on the 12th of June will take us from Dover to Calais, covering a distance of 34 kilometers.

Taking On The Challenge For Great Ormond Steet

At just two days old, Dave underwent groundbreaking open-heart surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).


This surgery was being pioneered that week by a surgeon from South Africa. Against the odds of a 17% survival rate, dying 3 times on the operating table, Dave survived, thanks to the pioneering efforts of the medical staff at GOSH.

Not only does Dave owe his life to GOSH, but his son also receives specialised care there, underscoring the profound impact this institution has had on our family.
