George Gough

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

George Gough

George Gough from the Warsash Maritime Academy is preparing to brave the elements and experience what every sailor hopes they NEVER have to do for real - spend 24 hours in a liferaft.

On Friday 11th March a team of students from Warsash Maritime Academy (part of Southampton Solent University), including George, will clamber into their raft and commence learning at first hand just what it would be like to be cast adrift as their boat sinks behind them. But this challenge is not only a chance to enhance their studies, but 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.

George says:

“Cancer is something that will affect each and every one of us during our lives, whether through family, friends or colleagues, the chances are you will know someone who has been affected by cancer. I will be spending some time out in the elements (something that we all hope not to face as training merchant officers), to raise money and awareness for those who suffer from cancer first hand. The Sail 4 Cancer Liferaft Challenge is a unique opportunity to help in providing memorable events and trips for those most in need.”
