Our rescuers are quite amazing and Chris Westcott is no exception. He has a day job, he is a volunteer at Station 2 Bakoven, his wife has just given birth ......but Chris is on a mission.
Tomorrow (Friday 8 Dec), if the weather plays along, he will swim from NSRI Bakoven to the NSRI Table Bay; passing Clifton, Bantry Bay, Mouille Point light house and continuing around the harbour wall; exiting at the NSRI slipway in the V&A Waterfront. The distance is around 14 km and his greatest challenge will be dealing with the cold Atlantic, without the protection of a wetsuit. Chris is being responsible, he has Derrick Frazer from Big Bay Events as his support and dedicated safety boat and he will be tracking his journey using the free SafeTrx App.The aim of the swim is to raise funds for wetsuits (and lifejackets, helmets, foul weather jackets, booties and gloves) for his fellow rescue crew.Chris is following his heart - please leave a message of support and click here to make a donation on his page. Every rand will help him get one step closer to his goal.
