How I Circumnavigated the UK by SUP - With Brendon Prince
This week Brendon Prince makes a triumphant return to the show after his epic 4000km circumnavigation around mainland Britain, which has been covered by international and British news media.
Brendon has broken a number of world records in the process and encountered the best and the worst of what the British coastline has to offer, and in this episode he talks about the experiences which shaped his trip including his 'interesting' encounter with Orcas.
The purpose of his trip was to raise money to develop an app to engage school children and the public to teach water safety and ultimately reduce the number of drownings in the UK. For a coastal nation we are generally uneducated about water and the sea, and this app communicates the message to children (and adults) effectively through games, stories and interaction, which is a highly effective method.
