Geraint Harris

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft


Geraint Harris 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 Geraint, 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.

Geraint says:

"I am a 29 year old mature student from South Wales; I'm currently studying to become a Deck Officer at Warsash Maritime Academy under the sponsorship of Maersk Shipping. Having spent a little time in a liferaft within the controlled environment of a swimming pool I am keen to experience a real life survival situation and raise money for an important charity at the same time. This will be my first experience at raising money for a charity and I'm looking forward to testing my practical skills and abilities."

Thank you for sponsoring me
