Seamus Crawford (f 05) and his friend Paddy Montgomery are taking part in the Saddle, Sand and Sea Challenge.  They have already completed the Saddle and the Sand and are now preparing for the Sea.

The Saddle consisted of  a race across Europe, 2933 miles in 12 days, ( The Tour de France is a mere 2131 miles in 21 days in comparison), crossing the Alps twice and the Pyrenees once.

The Sand was the recent Marathon des Sables, a multi day ultra marathon, 156 miles (six marathons)in six days across the Sahara Desert.

The Sea is the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, the premier event in ocean rowing, 3000 nautical miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua and Barbuda.
