The Project

Being a sufferer of dyslexia all my life and a massive water sports enthusiast, I decided it was about time to help others who have helped me in in the past. Please support me as I sail across The North Sea on a surfboard to raise awareness and funds for The British Dyslexia Association and The RNLI.
It is my turn to help make a difference to the lives and well-being of others.


Ten percent (10%) of the population are dyslexic; 4% severely so. Many of the dyslexic people across the UK are unable to fulfil their potential as a large percentage of the population still do not understand what dyslexia is. Dyslexia is not an obvious difficulty; it is hidden.

The British Dyslexia Association is the voice of dyslexic people. They aim to influence government and other institutions to promote a dyslexia friendly society, that enables dyslexic people of all ages to reach their full potential.

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea.

They provide, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the UK and Ireland, and a seasonal lifeguard service.

With their lifeboats, lifeguards, safety advice and flood rescue, they are committed to saving lives.

Fantastic Sail

Well I wasn’t expecting that! Rigged up in the rain. With my big board I made and my 9.6 meter sail (massive to people who don’t windsurf) and had 3 …
