To raise cash for RNLI

A dinghy sailor is planning a daring Laser dinghy dash across 145 miles of North Sea on 27 June to raise cash for the lifeboat.

Martin Evans planas to sail his Laser dinghy from West Mersea, Essex to Scheveningen, Holland.

The passage could take anything from 14 hours to well over 24 hours.

‘I will be going non-stop and have to be awake and concentrating 100% of the time so it’s quite a challenge,’ he said.
