Rob da Bank and Tim Weeks will be taking their Spiinbox sessions to Portsmouth with a very special 12-hour Sports relief edition which will run alongside a 24-hour America’s Cup ‘grind-athon’ hosted by Sir Ben Ainslie with his Land Rover BAR team.
The challenge starts at 10pm on Thursday 22nd March, with team members keeping the grinding going for 24 hours non-stop. The ‘spin-athon’ will come into play from 10am on Friday 23rd and both activities will finish at 10pm Friday evening. Throughout the challenge the team will be looking to ‘power the tower’; Portsmouth’s iconic Emirates Spinnaker Tower will light up blue over the 24-hour period, as the clock counts down to 10pm on Friday.
Sport Relief is a nationwide campaign to encourage the nation to get active alongside raising money to help vulnerable people in both the UK and the world’s poorest countries. The team has set a fundraising target of £18,510. 1851 is a significant date for the team, the year America’s Cup first started with a race around the Isle of Wight. A British Challenger has never won the America’s Cup.
