Dave Birch - Laser 150 Challenge 2018




Life can change in a heart beat .. . .. . .. .


In 2018 I will be undertaking an extreme sailing challenge to raise funds for Les Bourgs Hospice.


For this, I will be sailing my 13ft laser dinghy single handed and not stop

from Falmouth to Guernsey via Plymouth and North Brittany, covering 150+ miles.

It is expected to take about 36 hours!

There are no luxuries of an auto-pilot, bed, cooker or toilet. It is sure to be both physically and mentally challenging.

Training will be extensive.


Les Bourgs Hospice relies entirely on donations and fund raising. There is no states support.

They have only 35 paid staff and a huge bank of 150+ volunteers.

It costs in excess of £1.4 million a year to keep this service operational.

On average, they care for over 100 patients a year with life limiting illnesses.

Optimising palative care from highly trained staff, Patients at the tranquil and peaceful Andrew Mitchell House

recieve the best possible care.


Please, help me support this incredible charity. Donations can be made by clicking the 'sponsor someone' button to the right of this page or at my webpage: www.epicsailing.co.uk
