DAILY UPDATES - Kayaking the Thames!
Day 1: Wednesday 19th September
Colin Smith caught up with me at Culham Lock earlier today and said I was doing amazing, Kayaking the Thames for Taylan which really helped. Lucky he was there as I had to bypass the lock with a barge stuck in it.....was a long drop......!
My morale had dropped towards the end of the day - battling a constant headwind and a blister on my palm. Not a happy man! Andy Rawlinson thankfully joined me to keep me company. Overnight in a youth hostel for a hot shower and hopefully a better nights’ sleep.

Hi everyone, Just a quick note to let you know that Glenn completed his challenge today safely despite having to battle the rain and 1 metre high waves in London.
On 19th September 2012, Glenn Hearsey will be paddling his Kayak from the Source of the River Thames at Cricklade, through Central London to Greenwich. The total distance is approximately 160 miles and he will be doing this alone, with all of the kit to survive the trip on board in just 5 days.
This is no easy task mentally and physically and we take our hats off to Glenn for coming up with such an original idea to help fund the fight against brain tumours.
