We have a Guinness World Record!

Hello Supporters,

Today we were informed by Guinness World Records that they have recognised our journey! We now officially have the fastest time to travel the Kwanza River by kayak or canoe in a team - 32 days and 12 hours:

It took almost three years of discussion, two rejected applications (see below) and a mountain of evidence, but Alfy and I are finally Guinness World Record holders.

This is fantastic news for our fundraising efforts, and should help to sell more copies of Kayak The Kwanza. Remember that 25% of profits from the book are being donated to The HALO Trust, to help make Angola landmine-free by 2025. You can pick up copies of Kayak The Kwanza from Amazon using this link.
