“Going off the shelf and out of soundings”
“Raising Funds for the Lizard Lifeboat and the Fishermen’s Mission”
After competing in the Jester single handed challenge – Plymouth to Baltimore, Ireland in June 2015 Lizard lifeboat man Simon Fayers, with his 26 foot yacht Shebeca, will head south to a position off the continental shelf, south of 48 degrees latitude and west of 8 degrees longitude, returning to Helford via Brest, France. A round trip of some 900nm which Simon hopes to complete in under 10 days, attempting to navigate by sextant and compass, only resorting to GPS for furthest position verification.
Monies raised will be split equally between the Lizard lifeboat Station and the Fishermen’s Mission, a charity that provides emergency support and practical help to fishermen and their families.
If you would like to pledge a donation, please forward your email address, plus amount pledged to [email protected]. You will be notified on completion and receive a short narrative log of the passage. You are under no obligation should for whatever reason Simon fails to complete the passage.
However, if you would like to give a donation now please visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ simonfayers. You can also pledge an amount in person at the Lizard Lifeboat Station most days between 10.00am – 16.00pm.
