Round the Island Walk

I am sure I am not alone on this forum when I say that I support the RNLI...

This year (in an attempt to continue to raise money for the RNLI) I will be walking around the Isle of Wight. To make it slightly tougher myself and one other sailor will be conducting the walk carrying all we need to survive for however long it takes. It is approximately 70 miles, we will be living on dried food and sleeping in bivvy bags.

Having sailed the route many times I am looking forward to seeing things from a different perspective. I am not a particularly experienced walker and at the moment the task seems quite daunting. I hope that we can average 20 - 25 miles a day; I will certainly be conducting a few training walks before July!

I have set up a Just Giving account: Peter Green is fundraising for RNLI - Royal National Lifeboat Institution

At this stage I would be VERY grateful for either some words of support, some words of advice or even better a small donation!

Many thanks,

My compliments and best wishes in your endeavour...
Having friends who are serving volunteers with the RNLI in both Salcombe and Poole.. and having been a beneficiary of their excellent service when they towed me into Salcombe after being T-boned off Start Point..
I for one will be happy to bung a few Euro's in your direction... maybe an idea to set up a dedicated PayPal account for donations/sponsorship..
I do not exist to impress the world.
I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy.

Re: Round the Island Walk

Its a great pleasure for me to say "Thank you" again to Weymouth Lifeboat Ass. Few years ago they towed us into the harbor while we were in lee shore situation. They did a really great job.

Thanks for your idea and work. I even will be happy to support your plan.
