Anita Coombes

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft


Anita Coombes 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 Anita, 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.

Anita says:

"I am currently studying at Warsash Maritime Academy for my Deck Officer qualification with Evergreen Marine UK Ltd. So far luckily all contact with liferafts has been either theoretical or under supervised conditions in a swimming pool (I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will stay this way). My reason for doing this is to support Sail 4 Cancer in being able to give families going through the turmoil caused by cancer, a chance of having a break and creating wonderful lasting memories."
