Story

Thank you very much for showing an interest in my challenge to sail around Great Britain and Ireland, single handed and non-stop, starting Sunday 22nd June. 

I will be doing this to raise awareness for prostate cancer. The plumbing industry is predominately male oriented, so I have my target audience at my fingertips

I believe that only ten people have ever completed this challenging circumnavigation. This is slightly less, than men, who have stepped on the moon.

Why am I doing this challenge? Does it make sense? Of course not, but it’s my own Everest to climb.

Thankyou very much for your support in my challenge

 Prostate Cancer - what it means for Mat Fearn who lost his Dad to this awful disease :
 
When Richard told me his Dad was planning to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer research I was very impressed. I mean, Movember is one thing but a single handed adventure in a boat around the UK is another! Personally I support as often as I can. After losing my Dad Peter to Prostate cancer 10 years ago it means a lot to me and my family. My Dad made the mistake of leaving the classic symptoms and not seeing the doctor when he should have (typical man). Leaving it that bit longer made it tougher to treat and even though my Dad fought this nasty disease for 10 long years it finally caught up with him. What happened to our family, my Mum and brother happens to many other families around the world. This should not happen!

Awareness for prostate cancer is key to catching the thing early and I whole heartedly support Lindsay for his brave challenge! Please give and support however you can and together we can help ensure what happened to my family doesn’t happen to yours.
