The Vagaris / Allures / ARC ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

by Adrian on August 31, 2014

We’ve just arrived in Las Palmas in preparation for crossing the Atlantic in a couple of months with World Cruising Club’s ARC Rally.

What should we do with the dinghy before packing it away? My nephew sent me the challenge from Finland by having his two young boys douse themselves in cold water. Could we do any better?

I would like to see Stéphan Constance of Allures Yachting and Andrew Bishop from the World Cruising Club accept this challenge and support this awareness campaign or make a small donation to the appropriate charities…

Thanks to Allures for making great blue water cruising yachts and Andrew for organising what we hope will be a hugely successful Atlantic rally. We’ve just covered 2000 miles to get to this small island off the coast of Africa in the Atlantic and are looking forward to the challenge of the next 3000. Best wishes to all our friends and like-minded sailors on the way and we look forward to meeting you here soon.
