In 1967, three college friends set off on an epic 180-mile canoeing adventure: travelling down the River Wye, across the Severn Estuary at its highest tide, along the Gloucester Ship Canal, up the River Severn and finally via canal to their destination in the Midlands. They had virtually no canoeing experience, but persevered in leaking, canvas-covered, wooden-framed kayaks. They made history: not just for their stamina and safe crossing of the estuary, but because this was the first and only time the journey has been achieved. 'Three Men in Two Canoes' records their unique 12-day adventure and enduring 50-year friendship.
