He is hoping to be in Orkney on 16th and 17th May

Until then you can follow his journey on his Facebook page and there are links to where you can donate to his fundraiser: Chris’s quest – life boat station tour

Day 9 starts at RNLI Thurso Lifeboat Station around 9 then along to catch Pentland Ferries to Orkney, visiting RNLI Kirkwall Lifeboat around 4 and onto RNLI Stromness Lifeboat for 6ish.

Day 10 starts with a Orkney Ferries trip to Lyness to travel to RNLI Longhope Lifeboat, then back to catch the last ferry back to the mainland. Then a late visit to RNLI Wick Lifeboat around 19.00.
