Kayak duo paddling to Malta

Ian Laferla and Andrea Scorcia are currently paddling to Malta. Their estimated arrival time at Marsamxett Boat House (next to Sliema-Valletta Ferry) is tonight at 8:30pm

The Kayak for Charity 2014 Challenge got off to a great start on Saturday morning with the team attempting the return crossing Valletta-Pozzallo-Valletta on board of a double kayak in less than 40 hours.

They left Marsamxett Harbour yesterday at 6am and arrived at Pozzallo at 10pm on Saturday night. They rested for a few hours, did some stretching exercises and left Pozzallo Port at 3am this morning. The Kayak for Charity team is accompanied by a support boat which is ready for any eventuality.

Kayak for Charity has been using sports in aid of worthy causes since 2008, and this year’s challenge, supported by Frank Salt Real Estate, is in aid of Inspire, the Foundation for Inclusion that helps over 1000 babies, children and adults with learning and physical disabilities, reach their fullest potential by providing educational, therapeutic and leisure services.
