Jordan Wylie, the man who set out to solo circumnavigate the UK on a SUP has sadly had to wrap it up in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions, but he has a message for us all.
Jordan has inspired the whole SUP community. His dedication and perseverance truly resonates with us all during this time. Jordan has been raising funds for Frontline Children to build a school in the Horn of Africa and has raised over £82,300. Although not fulfilling the mission, he has so much to be proud of and he has a message to share with us all.
After 149 days, 7 hours and 36 minutes and 2377.29KM, The Great British Paddle has sadly come to an abrupt end. We have been informed by Scottish Government officials that to continue would be in breach of new COVID-19 regulations and laws. Full details on my Facebook page, a sad day for all of us but sometimes you have to do the right thing and not necessary what you want to do. Thank you to all you amazing people and companies that chose to support me and my team. We paddled further and harder for longer than anyone has ever done on the ocean via Standup Paddleboard and we are proud of what we achieved for our chosen charity. I could of paddled a further 23KM this evening which would of been easy and achieved another world first at John O’Groats but as I said from the start, this not about getting any award or setting records – it’s about inspiring hope and changing lives for children through the gift of education and the spirit of adventure. Be the difference that makes a difference, goodnight and god bless you all.
Well done Jordan and we can’t wait to see what you get up to next.
