Western Horizon Yachts sponsors Calum Evans in Tall Ships Race.

Well, Calum is nothing if not enterprising and has a raft of plans in place to raise the money he needs. The first stage is a sponsored climb of Ben Nevis kitted out in kilt, sporran, sgian dubh, and traditional socks with flashes, ... and now a Western Horizon Yachts tee shirt and cap.

We've asked Calum to write a bit about his Tall Ships ambitions in his own words, so here that is along with a photo of him dressed in his walking regalia. Hopefully we'll hear more in a few weeks plus get some photo's of Calums ascent and an update on his funding progress - we can't wait to hear how he gets on.

From Calum:


It has been a life long dream of mine to be part of the crew of a tall ship. This dream started when I was small boy seeing a tall ship sail past me in the English Channel, ever since I have dreamed of becoming part of the crew. I have always lived by the sea and been involved in water sports but Iíve never been on a tall ship. This is the first year I have been able to apply for the adventure as the age requirement is sixteen to twenty five and I am just sixteen. Western Horizonís contribution of sponsorship money for me to climb Ben Nevis will help pay for flights to Norway where I will meet the tall ship. I am climbing Ben Nevis in early June wearing a kilt to help me raise money.

Stavros S Niarchos, a sixty metre square rigged tall ship is taking part in the tall ship race between Liverpool, Norway, Den Helder, Netherland, and Southampton in July and August 2008.

I will be joining the ship in Maloy, Norway and the sailing in company to Bergen also in Norway. The experience is to increase personal confidences, team working skills and leadership abilities amongst many other benefits.
