Pete Bray Atlantic Kayaker

Monday 9 September

One of the most courageous feats undertaken by man and achieved against formidable odds, former SAS Sergeant Pete Bray is the only person to have kayaked solo unsupported the North Atlantic!


For 76 days, this indomitable Cornishman paddled relentlessly over 2000 miles across one of the most inhospitable oceans in the world. Enduring extreme fatigue, atrocious weather and catastrophic equipment failure, he made landfall on the West Coast of Ireland just a few days before 9/11.


There is no denying that Pete with many incredible expeditions and endurance challenges accredited to his name, being presented with several bravery awards for saving life in the face of adversity and surviving a hurricane, that he has led a very colourful life.

He now teaches outdoor pursuits inspiring others to achieve their personal goals despite the odds and is an accomplished inspirational and motivational speaker.
