Ocean Brothers to cut the ribbon on the fourth Poole Harbour Boat Show in association with Sunseeker
The two brothers from Lymington have just completed a 3,000-mile unsupported row across the Atlantic and spent 53 days at sea, raising in excess of £90k for the British Skin Foundation to fund vital skin cancer research in memory of their father and step-father, Peter Massey.
Organised by Poole Harbour Commissioners, the Poole Harbour Boat Show which is being held in association with Sunseeker, will take place on Poole Quay and the award-winning Poole Quay Boat Haven. The events will run from Friday 8th to 10th June and will feature a range of yachts and motor cruisers, dinghies and paddle boards, tall and war ships, on-water demonstrations, fireworks and live music.
Setting a Guinness world record in the process; Jude, the younger of the two Oceans Brothers has been certified as the youngest person to have rowed any ocean in a team of two. They are also believed to be the first people to complete the crossing on a vegan diet.
Since returning to the UK last month, the brothers have been busy sharing the fascinating story behind their grueling 53-day challenge to cross the second largest ocean in the world whilst enduring bad weather,
equipment failure and injuries.
“We were in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean when we were asked to open this year’s Poole Harbour Boat Show in association with Sunseeker. After such an eventful journey it was a great boost to our morale and we were delighted to accept. We are looking forward to visiting the show, meeting the visitors and sharing our story with them.”
The brothers are set to officially open the event on Friday June 8, following a VIP lunch reception sponsored by law firm, Lester Aldridge. The brothers will then be making an appearance on the Quay front to meet and share stories from their courageous adventure with the show’s visitors.
To continue the opening celebrations, visitors will be able to enjoy a spectacular firework display at dusk, sponsored by Sibbett Gregory, which will kick start a full weekend of activity and family entertainment. The show is free to attend and will open daily from 10amto 6pm, Friday 8th to Sunday 10th June. For further details visit: pooleharbourboatshow.co.uk.
