Rescue Swimmer
Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS)


My Random Act Of Kindness.
A voluntary rescue mission as a
rescue swimmer on board the
Migrant Offshore Aid Station ERRV
ship 'Topaz Responder' in the Eastern
Aegean to prevent loss of life at sea.

Malta Channel Swim
Personal Challenge & Adventure


Another really crazy attempt to swim
the Malta Channel from Sicily to
Gozo, a distance of about 82km/52
miles, which is roughly the
equivalent of swimming the English
Channel two and a half times.

I'm Ripley Davenport. I am an explorer, adventurer,
entrepreneur, pragmatist, nutter and wrestler of a vivid
imagination. I'm also: a son, a superhero, a father, a
husband, all round nice bloke and a regular average Joe
facing similar life struggles like most. Along the way I've
learnt some very hard lessons, confronted many obstacles
and achieved against all odds. I've experienced failure,
despair and disappointment, made bad decisions, acted on
impulse and suffered as a consequence.

I've always been fascinated in that extraordinary point
between adventure and personal limitations. Both of them
on their own aren't as exciting as when they collide.
I continually make every effort to understand and balance
both, so that I can develop as a person and generate positive
and meaningful memories of my life.

My revamped website is an updated reflection of my wacky
adventures and growth. It has evolved into a hub to
document my journey in adventure and other ephemera of

Ultra Marathon
Personal Challenge & Adventure


I'm no athlete or runner. I was never
first and I always ended up last. A
normal person would slowly increase
the distance but I'm mad enough to
set the bar ridiculously high with a
55km Ultra Marathon.
