Two teenagers plan dinghy crossing

Two 17-year-old sailors are to sail Lasers across the Channel from Dover to Calais to raise money for charity.

Nic Church and Florence Barrow hope to become the first and youngest Laser team to sail across the Channel. The Safety boats accompanying us across are from the ‘Pilot and Channel Swimming Federation’.

They hope to raise cash for the RYA’s Sailability, the Alice Martineau Trust, in aid of Cystic Fibrosis; and for deprived children in Lithuania. We are hoping to raise something in the region of £10,000 for each of those charities.
