Matt Hawkes set off on the first stage of his Circa Nautica tour of the UK from Wells Lifeboat station today, riding his Triumph Rocket III Touring on a 4500 mile route over 34 days in aid of the RNLI and aiming to visit 170 lifeboat stations.

The first of what may be very many cups of tea was provided at the lifeboat station before family and crew members waved him off from the beach bank on what was a fairly foul morning.

Matt's Triumph bike has a 2.3 litre engine, the largest of any production bike, and has been repainted in orange and blue especially for the trip. 

We wish him well and hope the weather picks up. 

You can follow Matt's progress on his Facebook page.
