- 09 September 2008 | Windsurfing
British Champion windsurfer Guy Cribb and the world’s fastest windsurfer and current World Champion Antoine Albeau of France, are about to attempt to windsurf across the English Channel from Cherbourg to Poole; over 70 nautical miles (more than 130 kms) of rough seas, some of the busiest shipping lanes in the world and howling winds, to raise money for the Ellen MacArthur Trust and their French counterpart A Chacun Son Cap.
The Ellen MacArthur Trust aims to support, empower and enliven children suffering from cancer, leukaemia or other serious illnesses by introducing them to the joys of sailing.
By donating to the Ellen MacArthur Trust through supporting Guy and Antoine to windsurf where no other windsurfers have tried before, you will give confidence and happiness back to children who’ve been stuck in hospitals for months or years, by enabling them to mix with other children who’ve recovered or are trying to recover from cancer, and feel the camaraderie and bravery of each other whilst sailing or possibly windsurfing.
Guy and Antoine will windsurf the channel in a storm this September, keep checking guycribb.com for updates in the next few weeks, and wish them luck by making a financial pledge to the Ellen MacArthur Trust.
