#SEA KAYAKING - Brit duo Andy Pearson and Paul A'bear will embark on a 500-mile sea kayaking voyage along Scotland's west coast this summer in aid of charity.
Canoe & Kayak UK reports that the pair will set out from the Solway Firth near the Scottish border at the end of June on the expedition that will take them through the Irish Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.
The adventure will see them paddle through "wild, stormy seas" and "some of the strongest tidal currents in the world".
Pearson and A'bear, who have been friends since primary school, hope to raise at least £1,000 for Cancer Research UK.
