8 DAYS at SEA- Summer 2023
Brendon Prince set off from Torquay Harbour on the 25th July, 2023 and LIVED on a paddle board for a WORLD RECORD 8 days & 4 minutes. Brendon took everything needed for the challenge with him from the start because NO supply drops are allowed. He only got off the board, at sea, to wash and attach a new fin as a seal had ripped one off! He never came ashore for 8 days and 4 minutes. He returned to Torquay Harbour at 12.04 on Tuesday 1st August.
Whilst at sea for the 8 days Brendon paddled 125km on the South Coast of Devon from Torquay, Dartmouth and Teignmouth.
Brendon raised money for the water safety charity ABOVE WATER and is currently on £2500.

Brendon must stay on the board to eat, sleep...everything?!? Only getting off the board if he falls in or if the board/equipment needs attention. He will not put a foot on land for the full 8 days and 7 nights. The challenge is all about the JOURNEY not the DESTINATION. Brendon will leave Torquay Harbour at NOON on Tuesday 25th July (weather permitting) and will paddle with the conditions. North, South, East...only the weather will decide?
To undertake such a challenge, a different type of board is required. Brendon has chosen the LIVE Expedition L4 for the challenge. This double hull board, has the capacity to paddle at 6km per hour but had comfortable hold 320kg. Brendon and all his kit it just over 200kg, which would be too much weight for most boards but for the L4 Brendon has a share 100kg. Brendon must take EVERYTHING needed for the challenge from the off as he is not allowed to be resupplied mid challenge. This is why he will be carrying 40kg of water and 20 kg of food plus all his kit and technology for comms, monitoring safety and 24/7 surveillance so you can watch Brendon night and day!
