The team kayeked and canoed the waterways of England starting in Tonbridge in Kent and finishing in Windsor. Andrew and the team paddled up to 20 miles per day down some of the most beautiful waterways in England.

The route was carefully planned to try and cover as much of the country and its navigable waterways as possible to allow as much participation from the wider estate agency community.

The team was keen to enable people join them to paddle any of the legs along the route. To this end they provided equipment in terms of open Canadian style canoes to kayaks. In addition transport back to the days starting point was also available. The inclusion of Danny Hodge (canoe and kayak instructor) to the party also allowed those with little experience to join the group.
