Simon s progress please click here Lizard lifeboat crew member Simon Fayers is taking part in the Jester Baltimore Challenge a single handed yacht race from Plymouth to Baltimore Republic of Ireland Simon will then sail to a position just off the Continental shelf a round trip of almost 900 nautical miles in his 26ft yacht before returning to the Helford River via Brest France Simon 53 has been a member of the lifeboat crew for over 7 years and is an experienced sailor who owns the 26ft yacht Shebeca which is moored in the Helford River He has taken part in a number of single handed yacht races but on this occasion he will be completing his challenge without the use of any electronic navigational aids he will be attempting to navigate by only using a sextant and compass He is currently teaching himself how to use the sextant This challenge starts at Plymouth on Sunday 14 June Simon is hoping to complete the challenge in less than 10 days and during the trip will be celebrating his 54th birthday Simon has decided to use this fantastic challenge to raise funds for both The Lizard lifeboat station and also the Fishermen s Mission two very worthy charity s that ensure the safety and wellbeing of seafarers Anyone can donate using the virgin money giving website at www uk virgingivingmoney com simonfayers Simon says I have wanted to sail out to the Continental Shelf where there is little commercial shipping for a long time and after hearing about the Jester Challenge I thought it would be a great personal challenge to combine the two I always thought it would be really good to learn how to navigate using only a sextant and this challenge was what spurred me on As a lifeboat crew member we get called to yacht s which have been disabled and are unable to use their electronic navigational aids I think it is great to be able to use just the basics of a sextant compass and chart Gina Moore Regional Fundraising Manager South West of the Fishermen s Mission says The Fishermen s Mission is a charity dedicated to the care of UK fishermen who risk their lives to catch the fish we all love to eat Our aim is and continues to be to provide emergency and welfare assistance 24 hours a day 7 days a week and 365 days a year whenever and wherever it is needed In an emergency we will always respond to injured sick and shipwrecked fishermen As a charity we know that many fishing families have lost a loved one of their own to the sea we understand that a lifetime of fishing takes its toll With that knowledge and years of experience we can help to make life a little better The Fishermen s Mission is absolutely delighted that Lizard Lifeboat crew member and highly experienced sailor Simon Fayers has chosen to support both our charity and the RNLI with his amazing single handed offshore sailing challenge off the continental shelf in June With his vast experience of the sea Simon understands both the dangers and the risks both sailors and fishermen face out at sea We wish him a safe and successful journey and all the very best navigating a circular 900 NM route in his 26ft yacht entirely by sextant and compass Simon is due to leave the Helford River on board Shebeca on Wednesday 10 June to sail to Plymouth for the skippers briefing on Friday 12 June before the race starts on Sunday 14 June 8th May 2015 FUND RAISING AUCTION HELD IN AID OF THE

lifeboat volunteer crew and shore crew members with help from the public took part in an abseil challenge on Saturday 23 August at Kynance Cove on the Lizard peninsular A perfect flat cliff face above Kynance Cove was selected to abseil down by David Issitt a member of the shore crew at The Lizard lifeboat station who came up with the idea of the abseil challenge to raise funds by people abseiling down the height of Mount Everest in 25 metre stints David a keen climbing enthusiast organised the event at Kynance Cove with assistance from JP Eatock owner of Lizard Adventure a local business that specialises in coasteering sea kayaking guided walks rock climbing and kayak fishing The perfect rock face was just over 25 metres high and was selected as it had a route to allow participants to walk back up to the cliff top The event was attended by people of all ages with the youngest at only 5 years old He was accompanied over the cliff by JP The event was well attended with over 163 abseils recorded making an overall height of 4100 metres higher than if Mount Everest had been abseiled down from its peak to base camp and in just 8 hours The event has raised over 500 Mike Lord Chairman of The Lizard lifeboat station said What a great idea it was Everyone had a super exciting time in perfect weather and wonderful surroundings and raised money for The Lizard Lifeboat at the same time

2014 The Lizard Lifeboat Station hosts another spectacular lifeboat day Kilcobben Cove at The Lizard was the setting for another spectacular lifeboat day hosted by crew shore crew and fundraisers from The Lizard Lifeboat station Visitors were wowed by the The Lizard Lifeboat Rose demonstrating an air sea rescue scene with the magnificent Sea King helicopter from 771 Squadron based at RNAS Culdrose in Helston Lifeboat souvenirs could be purchased and refreshments including a BBQ and Cornish cream teas were served throughout the afternoon The day also heralded the launch of the 2015 Lizard Lifeboat Calendar which is now on sale at the station and in various shops in the village and local area Visitors were also invited to guess weight of the Cornish pasty Which had been kindly baked and donated by Ann s Pasties The RNLI Lifeguards were also in attendance during the day as were the HM Coastguard team from Mullion However the Coastguards had to make a hasty retreat as they were called away to attend an incident on a nearby cliff path where their services were required This in turn cast a doubt as to whether the helicopter would be able to return to the station in time to carry out the demonstration Proving to the many visitors at Kilcobben Cove that these events can only take place if the rescue services are not actually required The crowds that remained at the station and on the surrounding cliffs and footpaths were not to be disappointed as the helicopter returned right on cue to carry out the demonstration with the lifeboat Thanks go 771 Squadron from RNAS Culdrose Phil Greet for providing the PA and sound system Ann s Pasties for donating the huge Cornish pasty The Witchball Restaurant for proving the delicious scones for the cream teas to everyone who donated refreshments and raffle prizes to all of the volunteers who gave up their time to help during the day and finally to everyone who came and made the event a resounding success yet again Another exciting fund raising event is due to take place on Saturday 23rd August Members of The Lizard Lifeboat and any other willing participants will attempt to abseil a total of 8 848 meters the height of

they have been running the cafe since opening it last year and decided to hold a book swap which has been gradually gathering momentum and as both son Hector and daughter Phoebe are keen lifeboat supporters they were very pleased to be able to present the RNLI with the money raised Mike Lord said It s always doubly welcome when well wishers give us donations they ve raised from ideas they have thought up themselves it shows such goodwill and imagination and takes some of the pressure off our hard working fund raising team Mike continues And Fat Apples Cafe is such a special place in a beautiful peaceful setting with good food to make it even better So our warm thanks to Jacci and her team for this boost to The Lizard Lifeboat s funds The Lizard lifeboat was launched just after midday today to assist the 11 metre fishing vessel Girl Pamela with three onboard that had suffered engine failure 5 miles south of Lizard Point The Newlyn based vessel contacted Falmouth Coastguard and asked for assistance The Lizard lifeboat was launched and took the boat in tow back to Newlyn returning to station at 4 30pm Coxswain Andrew Putt said This was a straight forward incident for the crew and the sort we have to deal with regularly But the lifeboat is able to respond to this and any incident due to people like Jacci and her family who raise essential funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and we are very grateful to them The photo shows Mike Lord receiving the cheque from Jacci Hector Jourdan with Freddie the dog Photo Bernice Putt The second photo shows fishing
