I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way

I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way to raise vital funds so young people can still get the support they need to rebuild their lives after cancer. Young people in recovery are going to need the Trust more than ever in the aftermath of COVID-19. Isolation, loneliness, anxiety, anger and fear are all challenges young people and their families experience during and after cancer treatment. COVID-19 is intensifying every one of these to unimaginable levels. I’m challenging myself to Sail, walk and swim 150 miles in September  to help make sure the Trust is still there for them.

Please support me on my challenge and make a donation. Whatever you can donate, any amount will help young people start to reimagine a future they might never have thought was possible.

My Updates

Mission complete!

Wednesday 23rd Sep
So- we’re on our way home having achieved the 150miles I set out to sail, walk and swim. It’s been great fun. 
Thank you to all those who sponsored me. I’ll try to put in a few more walking miles before the month is over.

Update 18/9/20

Friday 18th Sep
An eventful couple of days- just missing Cyclone Ianos thankfully. Some great swimming in the bay at Khaidhari where some of our party spotted a turtle popping it’s head out of the water. Also saw a fried egg jellyfish! From there quite a windy trip and another today - the edge of the cyclone. 
Now safely in harbour probably for 2 days to shelter from the next bit of weather. Maybe some walking miles on the rain!!

16th September-Making progress

Wednesday 16th Sep
I have now travelled 33 miles by yacht and 1 mile swimming in addition to the 7 miles walking already added . The biggest challenge so far is either too much or too little wind but lots of swimming opportunities- hard to measure the distances and very hot for much walking. 
No dolphins seen yet sadly- still hoping 😀

Thank you to my Sponsors
