On 8 June, eight year old Lauren Richardson, accompanied by her dad Kevin, G0PEK, will attempt to kayak 225 miles down the River Thames raising money for Widehorizons Outdoor Education charity. The thirteen day event will see them negotiate 45 locks and travel up to 27 miles a day from the source of the Thames to the sea. They will be operating on amateur radio carrying two transmitters, one for the 2m voice comms and the other for APRS, which will plot their position along the Thames via the internet. They will be traceable at www.aprs.fi.
