Show Notes

Jordan Wylie kept the UK biting it's nails throughout 2020, as they tracked his gritty progress as he attempted to be the first person to circumnavigate the British coastline on a stand-up paddleboard.

Despite facing a variety of challenges including injury and weather he crossed the Irish Sea twice and managed to reach the wild coast of Scotland around mid-winter. Jordan was on the point of entering the finishing straight, before he was forced to abandon due to COVID lockdown.

Jordan and his team covered a massive 1478 miles over 149 days and in this episode Jordan talks about his experiences and his reflections on this incredible adventure.

The purpose of his mission was to inspire and also to raise money to build the school he had promised to children on his visit to the Horn of Africa and is just £15000 short of his fundraising target of £100,000. Please help him reach his total by donating to Frontline Children here

Jordan is an author who has already completed a number of extreme adventures and his account of running marathons in Afganistan, Somalia and Iraq is in his book Running for my Life

His account of defending a ship against Somali pirates off the Horn of Africa is in his book Citadel

He's also co-authored a book with his daughter Evie called Around the World
