Sealskinz Athlete Dave Saunders conquered 3 countries, 3 mountains and over 1100 miles in just 8 days for charity.

The Team used Sealskinz Cycling Caps, Road Ankle with Hydrostop socks and Dragon Eye Road Gloves to Cycle from London to Portugal before starting their 3400 mile sailing trip to the coast of Brazil. On this stage of the trip the team used Sealskinz UltraGrip gloves, Waterproof Beanies and Hiking Mid Mid socks to battle against the stormy conditions of the Atlantics.
