Owen, James, Will & William

to spend 24 Hours in a Liferaft

James, Owen, Will & William

Owen Evans, James Crawford, Will Bell and William Hawke from the Warsash Maritime Academy are 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 Owen, James, Will & William, 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.

Owen says:

" I'm really not one for study and get distracted very easily, so it seemed to make perfect sense to strand myself in a liferaft for 24 hours just before my final exams. On a more serious note, it's for a great cause and I'm not one for running a marathon, so bobbing about in a raft for 24 hours was the best alternative to raise some money!"

James says:

"I think taking part in this challenge is going to be a great way to get some experience of something I hope I will never have to do for real life - unless I cock up monumentally - while raising money for a great cause."

Will says:

"Taking part in this challenge for me will be a great way to experience what it will be like to have to be on a life raft whilst also doing it for a great cause."

William says:

"I'm taking part in this challenge to raise money for the Sail 4 Cancer Charity, it'll be a great team activity and it will be something I've done that I can be proud of. What better place to spend 24 hours?"
