Wags wanted to go on a « suffer fest » to train for the next time we cross paths with our impressive Kiwi friends Phil and Rata (@twodashproduction on insta). The idea is that we can hopefully keep up with them for some missions on the NZ’s south island. On this beautiful day, we were joined by legends Benny Marr who had an impressive nonstop 29h endurance paddle on the Chilko-Chilcotin-Fraser, and GB’s finest Tom Rainey who has rowed across the North Atlantic ocean. Couldn’t think of a better team or a better river to complete my first ever kayaking vertical mile.
