Hi,

I'm planning to sail around Wales in a small catamaran to raise money for two charities: the Shark Trust and the Marine Conservation Society. The plan is to sail from the Severn estuary around to the Dee estuary over a period of three weeks from the 26th August to the 17th September. I'll either be coming into marinas and harbours overnight or beaching the catamaran and coming ashore. As well as raising money for charity I'll be taking part in some citizen science projects. I'll  be doing surveys as part of the Capturing Our Coast project, and searching the strandline to contribute to the Great Eggcase Hunt. My plan is also to conduct some two minute beach cleans and record some videos to highlight not only some of the issues affecting our marine environment, but also some of the wonderful marine life we have here in the UK.

The journey is approximately 500 nautical miles, and I'm setting a fundraising goal of £5000, which works out at £5 per charity per mile.

I'll be posting updates at my blog (ourcommonocean.info) and twitter account (@ourCommonOcean) using the hashtag #CatDragon.
