A sailing charity is calling out for intrepid individuals prepared to leave their home comforts and spend 24 hours in a life raft for charity.
On May 18, a team of brave volunteers will climb into an inflatable life raft and be floated out into Falmouth Harbour to battle the wind and waves. The day-long challenge aims to raise funds for the Falmouth-based charity Turn to Starboard, an organisation supporting Armed Forces personnel affected by military operations.
Event organiser Neil Triggs said: “This is the first year that Turn to Starboard has organised a 24-hour life raft challenge and we are looking for plucky individuals or teams who are willing to test their courage, endurance and teamwork skills. The challenge provides a chance to experience what it would be like to be cast adrift for real while also raising much-needed funds for Turn to Starboard.”
The fun challenge is part of Turn to Starboard’s Float-A-Boat campaign, which hopes to raise £100,000 during 2018 for a new training boat.
