The first stage is a short 46 mile hop from Cardiff Bay to Chepstow in the far south of Wales on the Severn Estuary.
Take in the historic sites of Cardiff, including the Norwegian Church (where Roald Dahl was christened) and iconic buildings such as the world renowned Wales Millennium Centre. This stage includes the Newport Wetlands Centre which is a National Nature Reserve and a haven for wildlife and Blackrock, the site of the old crossing point to England and, as well as a great view point, a lovely spot for a picnic.
This stage will be walked by Paul Conlon and his team.
