The founder of Wetwheels, Geoff Holt MBE, will return to Jersey for the Barclays Jersey Boat Show for the third year in succession, bringing with him the original Wetwheels fast catamaran to operate alongside the recently-commissioned Wetwheels Jersey to offer joint trips for up to twenty passengers at a time.
The Wetwheels fast catamarans are designed to offer people with disabilities an opportunity to experience life on the water, something they may not be able to do with conventional vessels.
Andy Le Seelleur, Chairman of Wetwheels Jersey said: “Larger charities and community organisations will be able to enjoy time on the water together. We are honoured that Geoff has agreed to return this year as it will be one of the rare occasions that both Wetwheels boats will operate together and we can give even more people a lot of fun in doing so”.
Wetwheels Jersey is particularly keen to welcome wheelchair users on board and is appealing for anyone who uses a wheelchair to experience the thrill of being at sea. Wetwheels is extremely stable and has been designed to safely accommodate wheelchairs. All passengers get the opportunity to helm her and try their hand at fishing and exploring the seabed with the on-board underwater video camera.
“Dolphins have been spotted in local waters now and if passengers get to see them up close they won’t forget it for a long time”, said Mr Le Seelleur.
There are still some spaces left for trips and any charity or community group wishing to register their interest should call Andy Le Seelleur on 07797 758338 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
