Celtic Paddles are proud sponsors of the Get Exploring Trust and have supplied paddles to Will and George who are putting the paddles to the ultimate challenge.

In addition, Will and George are carrying 4 Piece paddles with 650 Nylon Blades as their emergency spares.
The boys have reported on their blog; "Particularly amazing over the past few days have been our Celtic Pro Sea and Touring 650 Paddles. They are super lightweight, efficient and powerful... we will post a few videos of our kit, equipment etc. over the next few weeks"
