"WITHIN" Human powered boat

WITHIN will be a fully faired self-righting pedal powered boat capable of high speed in good conditions and maintaining way in adverse weather conditions. The boat will be performance optimised for Greg’s continuous power output and weekly provisioning requirements. WITHIN will incorporate modern materials and technology to ensure a lightweight craft without compromise for Greg’s safety and overall performance.

WITHIN-Prototype is a proof of concept boat based on a 2- man kayak hull that will enable rapid development of the technology required to make WITHIN viable. Phase one of WITHIN Prototype has been named WITHIN-24 and will be used early in the development phase of the project to attempt a new 24 hour record for human powered boats.
