My name is Jennifer Greenlees and I have a passion for long distance Paddleboarding. I previously paddled 75 miles from Portballintrae to Bangor in 3 days as a fundraiser for my cousins cancer treatment and Marie Curie. I also paddled from Donegal to Portballintrae in 1 day (5hrs) as a fundraiser for my friend who was getting cancer treatment. This current challenge Bangor to Dublin is a longer stretch 100 miles which  due to to covid travel restrictions, weather conditions etc. I have had to take it slowly. I am very excited because during this challenge I will have achieved a milestone of having paddled the whole way around Northern Ireland!

For this long distance fundraiser I started in Bangor and paddled harbour to harbour which was slow going due to unsuitable weather conditions and covid travel restrictions. I did complete Ards Peninsula and Strangford Lough crossing though in September 2021.

After the winter storms I got going again and in February 2022 I started the Strangford to Carlingford stretch which was very exciting for me as I have now paddled the whole of the Northern Irish Coast Line.

I am on the last stretch now from Carlingford to Dublin I hope to get this done this summer 2022. I am currently as far as Dundalk Bay.

Please sponsor me! All proceeds going to RNLI.
