The Golden Arc Expedition raises money for The Get Exploring Trust

Will McCreadie (aged 21 who lives in Hampshire) and George Parry (aged 22 who lives in Fulham), students at Durham university (who previously attended Wellington College) , just became the first British duo to successfully complete the formidable challenge of kayaking 2,000 miles from Grenada to Miami in an open kayak, unassisted.    Relying solely on the equipment that they could carry and the hospitality of the locals, Will and George faced incredibly challenging conditions as they navigated  their 22ft sea kayak through open water and treacherous reefs in the Atlantic and the Caribbean, at times paddling non-stop for over 24 hours with no land in sight.
