Ice diving on day 11 is surely an experience they’ll never forget. A huge hole had been carved into the ice, a ladder plunged into the water. We have a video of Pieter and Jasper taking their turn to submerge in the water. Respect! The pair took on every single challenge to raise money for VaarKracht, a foundation that offers sailing trips for people living with cancer, enabling them to momentarily forget about their worries and draw strength from the experience. The Webasto diesel cooker turned out to be an unexpected hero: it was always there, ready and waiting to prepare hot coffee and soups to lift spirits.
Day 7 was the moment they’d both been waiting for: Pieter and Jasper reached the North Cape. They were extremely chuffed and posed with the Webasto flag in front of the large metal globe on the viewing platform. Mission accomplished. Congratulations to them both! We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors and, above all, the people who donated to the cause. On day 13, Pieter and Jasper arrived safely back in the Netherlands, having raised a whopping €5,200 for VaarKracht.
In the end they throw down the gauntlet: “We want to challenge our colleagues: Who will be the next Webasto team to go on a fund-raising journey?” We can’t wait to see who takes up the mantle!
Happily they both pose at the finish.
