3:27pm 20th August 2014
A Bude lifeguard goes overboard.
Rory Sacree is spending 24 hours in the dark, floating out at sea, one kilometre of the Cornish coast.
He is simulating what happens when someone goes overboard to raise money for the RNLI,.
He will spend from 6pm Wednesday until 6pm Thursday all alone in the Atlantic ocean.
He says his training will prepare him well, he said: "Last week a friend and I decided to test the equipment I'll be using for the event to make sure it's all water tight, so we spent four hours in a paddling pool, luckily enough it was all good.
"I'm quite excited about what lays ahead, I'm expecting to get a little bit cold, a bit sea sick, a bit dehydrated, but conditions are looking favourable especially overnight, but conditions on Thursday are deteriorating and that could step up the challenge to another level."3:27pm 20th August 2014
