To Inspire And Enable More Disabled People To Share The Joy Of The Open Water.

After Dedicating His Life To Providing Access To The Sea For All Disabled People, Quadriplegic Adventurer Geoff Holt Mbe Dl Will Be Embarking On His Latest Voyage Demonstrating That There Are No Limits To Our Dreams. 

Celebrating 40 Years In A Wheelchair, Geoff Will Be Skippering A Wetwheels Boat In Aid Of The Wetwheels Foundation, The Charity He Founded To Enable Barrier-Free Opportunities On The Water For All To Support Health, Wellbeing And Create Special Memories.  

Departing From London May 2024, The Challenge Aims To Raise £1.2m For 4 New Wetwheels Boats, Offering Life-Changing Experiences And The Freedom Of Being On The Open Water.

Embarking on a journey to 17 accessible ports across the UK, Geoff and his team face a huge challenge, contending with unpredictable weather, the vessel’s endurance and the crew’s safety and wellbeing. This endeavour is particularly significant for Geoff, who will take on the challenge from his wheelchair.

The Wetwheels vessel holds special significance as Geoff’s inaugural boat, constructed in 2012, and serves as the embodiment of his dream. To prepare her for the monumental task ahead, numerous modifications have been implemented including the addition of a new shock platform at the helm, ensuring she is equipped to tackle the rigours of the journey and that Geoff and his chair are able to cope with the impact of the open water.
