John Lewis will be taking no chances in some of the most remote parts of the world when he carries a Fast Find 210 PLB on an epic journey from the London to Sydney in a modest classic car, the Hillman Hunter.
John and his co-driver Barry Hawgood will leave from the famous Ace Cafe in London on March 27th to drive overland to Sydney in an endeavour to raise a substantial amount of money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
The pair have re-created the Hillman Hunter car which won the London to Sydney marathon in 1968. They are going alone with no back-up and will be taking spare parts and tools. When they heard about the Fast Find PLB they decided it would be the best safety solution for a ‘last resort’ situation.
The journey is expected to take between 3 and 4 months and will take John and Barry through Europe to Greece, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India where they will ship the car to Malaysia and drive down through Indonesia and on to East Timor where the car will be shipped across to Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territories and then they will drive the final stage down to Sydney.
John comments "“We are undertaking a journey across some extremely challenging and remote parts of the world, and we feel very reassured that we are carrying a Fast Find 210 PLB with us. We know that if we get into a life threatening situation we have taken the very best precaution to be able to alert search and rescue services. Space is very restricted in the car so being able to carry such a compact unit as the Fast Find 210 PLB is very good news for us.”
John will register his Fast Find 210 PLB as soon as he gets it, in accordance with international regulations. That means that if he or Barry do get into a life threatening situation, a simple activation of the unit will transmit a signal to the global government search and rescue satellite system, COSPAS SARSAT, and their unique coded identity and position will be picked up by UK authorities and relayed to search and rescue services near their current location.
