The 3 Lakes Challenge
Andy’s first foray into adventure media. He devised an idea to raise some money for a Forces Charity, write his first ever magazine article and make a short film.
The idea was a diving version of the 3 Peaks Challenge. Andy, along with his friend Monty Halls – the only person Andy knew at the time stupid enough to say yes to his offer – would carry their dive kit up to the highest loch in Scotland, lake in England and llyn in Wales, driving between them all and all within 24 hours. He even convinced camerawoman Lynwen Griffiths to come along and shoot it.
If you’re thinking of taking on the challenge drop us a line via the contacts page and we’ll send you some more info.
A short film they made (in the days before they had HD cameras and professional editing suites), which won a commendation at the British Underwater Film Festival, can be viewed below.
