Hi Folks

I've been busy training away, setting up charitable trusts (almost done) working through logistics and marketing/fundraising plans. Once finalised the Trust will ensure all funds donated and collected are split 50/50 between the Cancer Research fund and the campaign cost - once the cmapaign costs are covered then 100% will go to the research fund.

Now I need your help. We have an opportunity on a couple of boats but they are short term opportunities that are only available while boats wait for shipping.

We need your help to raise the funds to secure a boat, which in turn will help significantlt to bring on major sponsors as all rowers I have spoken to have said having the boat is the key to the rest of the campaign dropping into place.

So as the boys on the corner say - step right up, step right up, step right up, step right up............................. 

Note: Payment tools being Credit Card online, paypal, Internet Direct and Branch Banking all coming soon, but it would be great to hear from you with your pledge of support and we can sort out payment as soon as the Trust is finalised.


What has caused this opportunity to purchase the boats?
Good luck with getting the money.  We are looking forward to seeing you off in WA.

These opportunities have come about due to the current owners personal circumstances. I'm not keen to get into the personal reasons other than to say I'm keen to make use of the opportunity which in turn will also help them.

Yep you will be expected in WA, who knows you may even get to tow the boat across the plains :o)

Well I suppose that would be a good excuse for a bit of a road trip to explore this great country wouldn't it.
