In this week's episode Simon chats with Fiona Quinn, who paddled her Red inflatable paddleboard the length of Great Britain and was also the first woman to cross the Irish Sea by SUP and complete a triathalon from 'End to End'.
The hugely impressive Fiona, talks about her growing hunger for adventure, which led to her ambitious target of taking on the classic distance by paddleboard, despite suffering from a chronic fear of open water.
For the full expedition experience, her book 'Ignore the Fear' is a great read here and to be truly authentic, make sure you eat a lemon drizzle cake while you do so, the recipe is here ...you're very welcome!
