Visitors to Eastbourne Sovereign Harbour’s Waterfront will be able to get up close and personal with a vessel which this winter will be sailing across the Atlantic to raise money for East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service and the Peter Andre Cancer Fund.
This weekend 27th & 28th August “Bojangles” the boat will be at The Waterfront along with its owner Daryl Farmer who will be rowing across the Atlantic this coming winter.
Daryl will be taking part in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge sailing single handed the 3,000 miles from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua.
Daryl will be there this weekend to show people the boat and explain the risk and the boat he will be rowing.
Daryl is raising the money in memory of his Mum who was lost to Kidney cancer in 2012. He is also raising money for his favourite charities East Sussex Wildlife Rescue which he volunteers for, and the Peter Andre Fund.
People are being invite to come down and visit the display and find out more as well as donate money to charity.
