Two men, one journey and more than 25 days at sea

In aid of Inspire, a team of two kayakers, Dorian and Albert, will be setting off from Mtarfa tomorrow morning, and will spend the next month kayaking; to Sicily, around Sicily and back to Malta.

Dorian and Albert, the duo known as ‘Kayak for Charity‘, will be paddling by kayak from Malta to Sicily, circumnavigating Sicily and paddling back to our islands. The distance for this paddle is approximately 554.47 Nautical Miles (1026.88 km). The entire journey will take between 20 to 25 days, all depending on the weather conditions.

Following the crossing between Malta and Sicily, which will take around 12 to 15 hours, the pair will start kayaking around Sicily, stopping each night to put up a tent, rest and resume kayaking in the mornings. After circumnavigating Sicily, they will crossover back to Malta.

The coastal part of the journey will be done unassisted, however, they will be making use of an escort vessel for the crossing to and from Sicily.

This is all in aid of Inspire Malta and donations can be made through their website.
