Story

In September of this year ten operational team members of Watersafe UK Search & Rescue Team (WUKSART) will be attempting to circumnavigate the entire coastline of Britain in a small Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) to raise funds for both WUKSART and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).

 

This unique challenge will be a great test to all involved as we aim to circumnavigate 1,999 miles of British coastline in just 9 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes. The event will start at Poole in Dorset which is the Headquarters of the RNLI and in a clockwise direction will stop off at certain RNLI lifeboat stations situated at strategic points along the British coastline with the event eventually finishing again at Poole lifeboat station.

 

9   September 2013 - Poole to Bude, England.

10 September 2013 - Bude to Beaumaris, North Wales.

11 September 2013 - Beaumaris to Stranraer, Scotland.

12 September 2013 - Stranraer to Kyle of Lochalsh, Scotland.

13 September 2013 - Kyle of Lochalsh to Wick, Scotland.

14 September 2013 - Wick to North Berwick, Scotland.

15 September 2013 - North Berwick to Cleethorpes, England.

16 September 2013 - Cleethorpes to Margate, England.

17 September 2013 - Margate to Poole.

 

On each leg of this challenge there will be a crew of four in the boat at all times and the main reason for this is for safety. As well as obviously needing a driver, there will be a person responsible for navigation and the other crew members will be responsible for the smooth running of the boat as well as safety officers looking out for dangers and communicating with the driver and rest of the crew. Once out at sea we will be totally alone and responsible for ourselves and therefore self sufficient on each leg of the challenge.

Throughout the 9 day challenge we will have a support crew which will be liaising with ourselves and the RNLI and will be following our progress. Our support crew will be meeting up with us at each RNLI lifeboat station at the end of each leg.

So please dig deep and donate now.
