Ben Wilkinson

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

Ben Wilkinson

Ben Wilkinson 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 Ben, 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.

Ben says:

"I am a 19 year old Merchant Navy Deck Officer sponsored by Trinity House. Having spent little time in a life raft (thank god!) I want to get to grips with being in one in a real situation and not just in a controlled swimming pool! As well as this, raising money for this charity is very important. Being a keen sailor myself it is important to help out where I can. So please get sponsoring!!!"

Thank you for sponsoring me
