Tom Rainey's Fundraiser:

Ocean Valour

BENEFITING: National Brain Tumor Society, Inc.

EVENT DATE: May 02, 2015

Tom Rainey

THE STORY:

Starting in May 2015 Tom Rainey and Lawrence Walters will row from New York (USA) to Salcombe (UK) across the treacherous North Atlantic Ocean entirely un-supported in order to raise $100,000 for research into brain tumours.

In 2012, just before Christmas, Tom lost his father, Luke Rainey. As a passionate sailor and wonderful father he taught Tom a great deal about life, the ocean and to respect his environment. His death was due to a brain tumour and it rocked Tom and his family to the core. But, thanks to the Brain Tumour Charity they were provided with the help and advice which gave them an invaluable port in an otherwise un-weatherable storm.

Battling 40+ foot waves, gale force winds, freezing waters and dodging icebergs, the pair will tackle 3400 miles of ocean and if successful, become the youngest crew to cross the North Atlantic, and the first pair to travel mainland USA to mainland UK.

We flew past you on our way to Britain a few days ago, while you guys were toiling away below. I think anyone taking the essy way across the Atlantic should add a donation to their ticket cost, so here's ours. 2 years ago
