Lizzie, who described the challenge as her most ambitious yet, solo paddled across the English Channel – from Dungeness in England to Boulonge in France.

The 24 miles of unpredictable open ocean was completed by Lizzie on 18 May, as she battled through strong currents, choppy waters and relentless winds.

Lizzie completed the challenge to raise awareness of plastic pollution and monitored plastic pollution levels throughout her attempt.
