THE IRISH SEA CROSSING ATTEMPT RAISED £3565.20 FOR THE WBA AND RNLI!!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Althought the attempt was very successful in many respects - I crossed 23 miles of open ocean and the team raised over £3500 for the charities the event supported, it definately feels like a case of "close but no cigar!". So, I think there will be another attempt at some point in the future. If you would like to offer your support for any future attempt please email me.
In the mean time - the just giving page is still open should you wish to donate and help the charities even further... thanks!

I plan to “walk” across the Irish Sea.....on a unique human hamster wheel raft, that I have designed and built, to raise funds for the Wiltshire Blind Association and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Stay updated via the Blog.
The challenge will require me to power the paddlewheel raft, non-stop, across 66 miles of open sea, for around 40 to 48 hours...burning an estimated 36,000 Calories and drinking 20 to 30 Litres of water. It will be like running roughly 10 back-to-back marathons. It's on the very edge of what I believe I am capable of, with many unknowns and no guarantee of success. (more about crossing dates, more about Chris's previous challenges)
The charities - I hope to raise £10, 000 for each charity. £1000 for the WBA will provide a "moving on" course for ten people to help them start adjusting to sight loss. £1000 for the RNLI will provide personal safety kit for one crew member.
