Serious Request

Albert-Jan, A friend of mine, executed 15 rolls within two minutes for charity and thus collected 1763,40 euro.

The biggest challenge for him would not be the rolling itself, but the current near-freezing water (and air!) temperatures...

Albert-Jan opened my eyes (wide) some years ago when he hand-rolled in a tide-race in the week of his Advanced Sea Proficiency assessment. That was before all the Greenland-style rolling 'arrived' in the Netherlands.

Check-out his website for more information and footage and news items on this challenge.

The Serious Request challenge is national radio charity week.
