Circumnavigation of the United Kingdom Coastline by Sea Kayak

Nigel's Challenge' is to kayak around Great Britain in support of BLESMA the British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association and young South African amputees. His message is that there is life after amputation, 'Get Up and Go For It'.

Nigel was injured in a horrific televised skydiving accident at Aston Villa Football Club in 1998. He survived some serious injuries which undoubtedly would not have been the case had it not been for the immediate medical care he received from paramedics/specialists at the scene and the medical teams at Birmingham City Hospital, England.

He subsequently had his left leg amputated above the knee.
