RAF 100 Baton Relay Visits the Isle of Wight

The idea of the baton relay originally began as an orienteering challenge and still has a significant element of that in it. Each baton carrier will be given just a start and end point and they will have to work out the rest themselves.

The baton is being be carried by RAF personnel, cadets, veterans and members of the many sporting associations that make up the RAF.

Amongst many means of travel, it will be transported by boat along the River Thames by the RAF Rowing Club, carried by the RAF Falcons as they parachute from an aircraft, be ridden on horseback and power kited along Benbecula.
This morning the Baton anf Willing volunteers took a trip on the Hovercraft to visit two schools on the Isle of Wight.
The relay began its journey at the Royal Courts of Justice on 1 April 2018 and will end 100 days later on 10 July on Horseguards Parade
