Well, we were all organised and ready to go! We had several nurses and staff members ready to take the hop down the side of the Spinnaker and the excitement was palpable!
Unfortunately despite it being a beautiful day the wind picked up just as we all arrived and we were told by the safety staff that we had to wait to see if there would be a break in the wind which would make the abseil safe to complete. We patiently waited for updates every 15 minutes until we were eventually told that none of our team were able to abseil the Spinnaker Tower that day.
To ease the disappointment all the participants took themselves of for a bit of retail therapy around the lovely Gunwharf.
However, every cloud has a silver lining, and we have rebooked to hit the Spinnaker Tower 21st July and there are still 15 spaces available!
If you want to be part of the fun there is still time to register. Go to https://stwh.co.uk/support-us/events/spinnaker-tower-abseil-2018/ to apply. If you don’t feel brave enough then why not come along and show our dare devils some support.
Keep your fingers crossed that Mother Nature is kinder to us on 21st July!
