Grizzly Hart's World record expedition
Grizzly Hart, former member of the SAS (South Acton Scouts) broke his fingernail on 'Bob a Job' week when he was just 45 years old. Despite this he recovered and just 2 years later went by railway to the top of Mount Snowdon in Wales.
Having circumnavigated Edgbaston Reservoir on a pedal boat he set his mind to a new world record - Circumnavigation of Great Britain.
This record, which was completed on Tuesday the 26th of August 2003, was today confirmed by the 'Banks's Mild' Book of Records.
Grizzly Hart's circumnavigation of the UK was confirmed as the very first by Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB).
Okay so others have been around the UK before but no one else has circumnavigated the UK, crossed The Pentland Firth in 3.4 m SIB with a 15 hp engine, broke into two different premisses AND picked a fight with 20 yotties.
Any challengers to this record should contact the press with all their details.
