We are actively seeking a sponsor for this expedition and will be delighted to hear from any interested party.

The GPS PE Pipe Systems Company has generously donated the water pipes to make the raft, and have been immensely patient and helpful throughout the raft’s life.

Whoever you speak to about trips across the Atlantic, they all recommend Jim MacDonald at Mactra Marine.
All the crew of AnTiki are alot more confident because of the water maker generously lent by Jim.
Right from the start he has shown interest in the project and meeting people like Jim makes the whole adventure more enjoyable. Visit his website HERE.

Water is of vital importance to life and it is becoming apparent that clean water is available for less and less of the world’s population. We have been accepted by the Water Aid Charity and will raise funds for them (HERE) during the crossing and remind people, whilst we float on salt water, that fresh water is what keeps us alive. As we are using water supply pipes for the basis of the raft it is an appropriate charity.
