Sail 4 Cancer Chairman, Graham Precey, will be spending 24 hours in a liferaft over the weekened of 10/11 November to raise awareness of the 1,000 people diagnosed with cancer in the UK every 24 hours.
Graham will start his challenge at 12 noon on Saturday the 10th of November. The challenge will end 24 hours later at 12:00pm on Sunday the 11th of November. The Brighton raft is being sponsored by exhibition services company, 200m2 Exhibition Stands.
Ocean Safety will be supplying the following equipment for the challenge:
Our thanks to everyone at Ocean Safety for their support!
Commenting on the challenge, Graham Precey said "Spending 24 hours in a liferaft in November will be a pretty uncomfortable experience. Because of the cold and the fact that liferafts are rarely dry inside, we're going to have to wear survival suits! These things are uncomfortable for an hour, let alone 24! What's more, there is a good chance that we'll develop sea-sickness even though we are in the harbour due to the unusual movement of the raft on the water and the fact that we won't be able to see the horizon from inside the raft. However, compared to the rigours of cancer treatment this will be easy. I look forward to meeting members of the public there on the day... please do come down and see us on the day!"
