Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have undertaken a few adventures during the last 10 years but was ready for a new challenge when I spotted this race being advertised on the underground. As soon as I read about it, I knew. I have never sailed in my life and this looks both physically and mentally demanding but it also looks right up my street. I have done some fundraising in the past for events and for me it is always charities for children. I hope to raise more funds this time than I have ever achieved to date and I thank you for visiting my page and hopefully supporting my fund raising goals. Please be assured that none of the funds raised in any way contribute to the cost of the adventure.

For further information and occasional updates, please visit my blog which will be updated whenever I have done a training course or as more information becomes available at
