Story

On the 29th June I was enjoying a day boating and jet-skiing with my family in the Solent when my wet-suit and "crown jewels" became entangled in a snap davit while jumping from my boat.
 
On a serious note, I could have bled to death without the speedy response of the Hamble Lifeboat and the Marine Coastguard Agency who came to my rescue within minutes, and I am therefore sacrificing my last shred of dignity to raise funds in their support.
 
Please visit my website petesplums.org, and follow us on facebook and twitter to laugh (cross-legged!) at my misfortune. My humiliation will be complete when the BBC coverage goes live - I will keep you informed.
