Sailing Club member Jonny Gambell is windsurfing the Wash in aid of the RNLI
“As part of my Extended Project at College I am organising and planning a windsurf crossing from Hunstanton to Skegness and potentially back again, depending on weather conditions. My aim is to raise money for the RNLI charity which SAVES LIVES AT SEA and only exists thanks to generous donations.
We will be checking forecasts regularly in search for a perfect forecast to make the crossing and will set out from Hunstanton beach”
Fellow windsurfers Neil Greentree, Steve Chatten, Andy Holland will be escorting Jonny with John Fox and Penny Wiles coming along for the ride. Its date is fluid to get the right wind in the right direction but will be completed within the first 6 months of 2018. Sadly this event is not open to all for safety reasons but it will for sure test the nerve of the riders both physically and mentally.
Jonny has set up a Just Giving webpage to allow people to donate to this great cause – you can find it here
