The Echo has recently reported that two brothers are planning a 2,000 mile voyage, sailing around the coast of Britain for charity.
Dean Osler, from Eastwood and his brother Craig, from Hullbridge, will be starting their journey aboard their 33ft yacht Nebula on 2nd June and expect to be sailing for two or three months. They will be raising money for Havens Hospices and their fundraising target is £2,000. Havens Hospices cares for children and adults with life-limiting illnesses.
Craig, 39 said,
“When I was younger I spent a lot of time at Great Ormond Street Hospital with a friend so I know how serious illnesses can affect young children.
“I wanted to make a difference to my own community and support Little Havens for the care they offer to local families. This is the longest either of us will have been away from our families and that is going to be really hard for us, but our dad is hoping to join us for a few days when we get down to the south coast.”
Dean and Craig have spent the past year practicing their sailing, including some night sailing to prepare themselves for their challenge.
We are happy to have sold two of Craig's boats for him over the last few years and look forward to following them on their adventure. Their current boat Nebula is a Moody 33. Check out this Moody 33 for sale at Boatshed Essex (price reduced!)
