Lizzie Carr from Nottingham has become the first female in history to solo stand up paddle board across the English Channel.
Setting off from Dungeness in Kent, at 7.15am yesterday Lizzie paddled solidly for over seven hours to complete the exhausting crossing, reaching Boulogne, France at 2.15pm.
Commenting on completing the 24-mile crossing, Lizzie explained:
“I’m thrilled to have completed this challenge. It seems very surreal that I set off from England this morning and have arrived in France by the afternoon!I left Dungeness with two dolphins dancing round my board and finished in Boulogne with a Sea Lion staring me in the face - if that's not the sign of a great day then I don't know what is! Whilst I feel very proud of the achievement, the driving force for me has always been the bigger environmental story about plastic pollution in our oceans and creating as much awareness about this as I can.”
During today’s channel crossing Lizzie collected water samples for micro plastic analysis as part of her #PlasticPatrol initiative, designed highlight how 80% of marine debris comes from inland sources.
