Whilst it is obviously in the interests of a good cause, it sounds to me as though there will be some pleasure involved in the trip I wouldn't have thought it would be out of the question to charter a rib for 2 weeks.. They have free accomodation (sleeping in fire stations on way round) and a reasonable number of people participating - split between them, and with the saving in cost of using red diesel v's petrol it sounds like it could be value for money for some fun.
