Solo sail around Iceland from Whitehaven, UK

Do you want to join me in making a difference ?
I'm raising money for PARENT TEACHER AND FRIENDS ASSOCIATION OF HALSALL SCHOOL ST CUTHBERTS and any donation will help.

I will be sailing my mini transat yacht (
that’s only 6.5 mtrs long) from the UK to Iceland and back. So what you may say. 
The yacht has no creature comforts - no toilet (only a bucket!), no bunk -only a beanbag, and live in a space smaller than you’d want to cage a dog in, whilst also dealing with whatever the weather throws at me. I will also have to deal with missing Whales and possibly ice bergs ! All this whilst following a sleep pattern of no more than 20 minutes a time.

I am looking to leave Whitehaven early June and school will be tracking my progress - they will be able to look at the weather and learn about weather patterns and forecasts and follow my trip.

Anything you can give towards the school funds would be much appreciated.
