Amanda Rees

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Amanda

Amanda Rees 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 21st March a team of students from Warsash Maritime Academy (part of Southampton Solent University), including Amanda, 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.

Amanda says:

"I am a 27 year old Deck Cadet studying at Warsash Maritime Academy under the sponsorship of Carnival UK. I am thoroughly enjoying the course and looking forward to all it has to offer!
In our first week at Warsash, Sail 4 Cancer approached us with an exciting challenge that would involve spending 24 hours in a liferaft tethered to the Academy's pierhead on the River Hamble. It is a charity event organised by Sail 4 Cancer to raise funds and awareness for the hundreds of us that are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every day.
The Liferaft Challenge is a test of endurance and an opportunity for us to develop our sea survival training but most importantly, it is an opportunity for us to raise as much money as possible for Sail 4 Cancer to enable them to continue providing care and respite to those in need.
Please donate to Sail 4 Cancer today."
