Josie was diagnosed with a brain tumour 5 years ago, but last year we discovered it had become malignant. Josie is determined to enjoy life and not let her disease hold her back from accomplishing some of her dreams.
We set ourselves the challenge of sailing around Britain "Round Britain with a Brain Tumour"
We set sail on the 15th May from Fox's marina on the river Orwell. We are well on the way, having completed the east coast of England and Scotland, passed through the Caledonian canal and are now on the west coast. We plan to finish the challenge on the 4th September back at Fox's marina in Suffolk.
Please visit our website www.contessa32.co.uk for more information about our trip, blogs, photos, twitter and to follow our progress on our yacht tracker.
Josie has received a huge amount of support from the Big C centre in Norwich. It provides a vital service to people living with the effects of cancer and we want to help ensure this continues. We aim to raise £5000 for the Big C, please help us and donate now.
