Cadets and students from the Warsash Maritime Academy, and Southampton Solent University, are preparing to brave the elements and experience what every seafarer hopes they never have to do for real - spend 24 hours in a liferaft.
On Friday,10th March 2017 the group wlll climb into liferafts, which will be secured to buoys afloat in the waters of the River Hamble. It will be cold and wet and they will experience first hand just what it would be like if they were cast adrift with their boat sinking behind them. Raising funds for charity as part of the Solent RAG this adventure hopes to raise loads to give families a break from cancer.
Not only is this challenge a chance to enhance their training for the Cadets, but it is also a great opportunity to raise funds and awareness for those whose difficult times will last a great deal longer than 24 hours - UK families living with cancer.
