  • 1. SAILINGCHALLENGE4MS – RUBEN DONNÉ SAILS SOLO ACROSS THE ATLANTIC TO CONCURE MS RUBEN CHALLENGES YOU: CONQUER THE OCEAN - CONQUER MS Ruben  Donné  is  a  professional  seaman  (Exmar)  and  amateur  sailor  who  wishes  to  use  an   ambitious  sailing  voyage  on  a  very  small  boat  to  raise  awareness  of  and  raise  money  for   Multiple  Sclerosis,  a  debilitating  disease  which  affects  many  including  his  own  father.  Today,  a   cure  for  MS  is  non-­‐existent.   On the first of October 2016 Ruben Donné sets sail from Newport, Belgium to Cape Town, South Africa, including a stop in Salvador, Brazil. 7818 nautical miles, 3 continents, 60 days alone on board a 6.5 meter boat. “It will be a battle of man versus nature. I will be completely self-dependent: navigating the route, adjusting sails, making repairs and monitoring traffic/ weather information. The extreme living conditions of me against Mother Nature are a challenge; I want to find out how I will react under these circumstances. Leaving my comfort zone and pushing myself to achieve the goal: sail across the Atlantic Ocean.” YOU’RE CHALLENGED! You can become part of this adventure. Through his website (www.sailingchallenge4ms.com) you can BuyAmile4MS: you decide which nautical mile you buy (7818 nautical miles in total). Once Ruben has reached your specific mile, he will send you a message to confirm that the challenge is successfully completed. (10 euro per nautical mile)
  • 2. Or YourNameOnMySail: by writing your name on Ruben his sail, you navigate with him in this great adventure, from the North Sea across the Atlantic Ocean, through the Doldrums via Brazil to Cape Town. Ruben his motivation… “I want to put Multiple Sclerosis on the map by bringing a positive and unique story. This way I raise funding to help find a cure for this disease. People living with MS today have no chance to heal. My dad has MS.” “Every contribution makes a difference. Can you find yourself in this story? Then help me tell it. You support to challenge others makes the difference! – Challenge accepted?” More info: www.sailingchallenge4ms.com
