Atlantic crossing by RAFT
Anthony Smith has fulfilled his dream to cross the Atlantic Ocean on a raft made of water pipes.
His life has been filled with adventure and after 84 years of travelling through 70 countries he shows no sign of stopping.
With your help he hopes to raise money for WaterAid, his chosen charity, and help raise awareness
of the work they do to remind people of the many proverbs about water.
“Water, Give me water, “ cries the desperate desert traveller. He never asks for food.
Without food a man takes 60 days to die. Without water he lasts a quarter of that time.

It is with great sadness I have to tell you that Anthony Smith has died. I will share a proper obituary in good time, but his book about this trip will be published in February 2015, and he was well into his next book - about people with the name SMITH.
