I was wondering if there is any generous person that wouldn't mind giving up there time to accompany me as a support vessel as I cross the English Channel for charity in a Kayak in June.
On June the 4th I will set off from Manchester on a 'super triathlon', which will see me run, cycle and kayak my way 450 miles to Paris in 7 days. I have chosen to do this challenge in fancy dress in the hope it will raise awareness of the event, I have decided to complete it dressed as the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow!
I will be raising money for two very worthy organisation, the first Cancer Research UK and the second VESA - Volunteer Eco Students Abroad (which helps to carry out vital charity and support work in Africa and South America)
I am posting this as I am in need of a support vessel to help me navigate (and in case of emergencies) across the English channel. I plan to set off from Dungeness on Sunday 8th June
in the morning and arrive in Boulogne-sur-Mer on the French coast in the afternoon , I expect it will take me between 4-7 hours to cross the channel on my kayak depending upon the conditions.
It would be a tremendous help if you were able to provide the much needed support service as without this I doubt that I will not be able to carry out this charity event and help support the charities. I will be able to contribute some money towards the cost of the service however as this is a charity event the smaller the cost the better off the charities will be.
Thank you for taking the time to read my proposal, if you are interested in helping me I would be delighted to hear from you.
