We want a world where boating is accessible to everyone regardless of circumstance


Dear All,

On Tuesday 8th august we sucessfully completed the channel crossing in 3 hours and 20 minutes starting in Dover, as planned, and finishing in Calais. We were blessed with brilliant conditions which made for a really exciting sail. Waves up to ten foot, and a force 4/5 wind meant that we planed all the way across. The ships and ferries proved not to be a problem due to the excelence of the Pilot support boat. All in all it was a very sucessfull expedition and thank you to all those who have supported us so far.

We have raised a considerable amount offline however we still have a little way to go and so any support would be welcomed.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Nic and Flo
