Maritime and Coastguard Agency to carry out UK coastline sponsored walk

Coastguards are going to walk right round the British coastline during 2002 to raise money for a sailing charity.

The 4,300 miles will involve some 279 coastguard teams from the Maritime & Coastguard Agency.

They hope to raise money for the Jubilee Sailing Trust which takes handicapped people to sea on their tall ships Lord Nelson and Tenacious.
