Al Mennie To Leave For Islay Soon

Islay News in stencil

Remember Alastair Mennie? I mentioned him back in February in The Giant's Crossing to Islay. Back then he announced that he was planning to paddle a surfboard from the Giants Causeway across the North Channel to Islay. He was aiming for the end of March to beginning of April for this challenge. It looks like the big day might have come, as this tweet indicates:

So it seems I'm paddling to Islay for chest heart and stroke at dawn loaded and everyone ready.fingers crosses I make it

You can read more about his preparation on his news page, including So Far…Over £1000 raised for Chest Heart and Stroke, Row yer boat ya F…… B……, Causeway Lass and Coleraine Borough Council are supporting my crossing. For further background read The Giants Crossing and check his JustGiving page.

All that's left now is to wish Al all the best and good luck for a successful crossing to Islay!
