Amputee Ex-Servicemen Set New Record for Circumnavigating Isle of Wight

11th June 2016. Three amputee servicemen; Jimmy Wilson, Hari-Budha Magar and Tyler Christopher have set a team record for the 54mile kayak around the Isle of Wight of just over 10 hours.

An able-bodied record of approx. 7 hours exists, set by single kayaks but this new record set in double kayaks by men without legs is a remarkable accomplishment and one the team will now seek to better next year.

This first Isle of Wight circumnavigation kayak also forms part of the charity’s training for this year’s gruelling Greenland Kayak Expedition taking part in September.

James McMullen, for Pilgrim Bandits Charity Explains. “The weather was perfect on Saturday. The record of 10 hours 25 mins was set by ex-Ghurkha Hari Budha Magar, a double leg amputee partnered in his kayak by veteran Richie Couzens. Jimmy and Tyler and their partners came close behind. We can’t thank all our supporters enough for their wonderful generosity of spirit from Cobra Ribs, the Tynell family for the loan of their motor yacht, Yarmouth Harbour Masters, Matthew Bates from Made to Measure in Christchurch, Island Brewery and many more besides. This is just the first of what we hope will be an annual event and we couldn’t have done it without the support of so many.”

Pilgrim Bandits Charity operate a wounded serviceman’s kayak training and instructor qualification scheme that prepares them for employment in the growing leisure sector. These lads are taking part in the Greenland expedition in the Autumn but are also working towards a teaching qualification using skills and experience they gained in service.
