999 Round Britain Coastal Challenge 2014
In June of this year ten operational team members of Watersafe UK
Search & Rescue Team (WUKSART) will be attempting to circumnavigate the
entire coastline of Britain in a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) to raise
funds for both WUKSART and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI).
This unique challenge will be a great test to all involved as they aim to circumnavigate 1,999 miles of British coastline in just 9 days, 9 hours and 9 minutes. The event will start at Poole in Dorset which is the Headquarters of the RNLI and in a clockwise direction will stop off at certain RNLI lifeboat stations situated at strategic points along the British coastline with the event eventually finishing again at Poole lifeboat
Please look upon this challenge favourably and please donate whatever you can. MANY THANKS!

The rib which will be used for this challenge is my current demo model a Parker 750 Baltic. The engine is a Mercruiser 4.2 (320HP) with a Bravo 1 drive. The rib is more than capable in doing this challenge. She is equipped with a Simrad NSS 12 GPS, 4 G broadband radar , StructureScan and SonicHub for on board entertainment . The current radio is the Simrad RS25 but this will be replaced shortly by the RS35 which has built in AIS
