What does it feel like to be in the middle of nowhere with a shark scratching its nose on the underside of your kayak?
The two Australians who were the first to kayak across the Tasman, James Castrission and Justin Jones, will speak about motivation and achieving goals at the Project K Marlborough charity auction next month.
Project K Marlborough manager Chris Shaw said their discussion was suited to the aims of the programme, which is to help build confidence and achieve goals.
Marlborough businesses had been generous to help with charity items in such hard economic times, and he hoped people would get along for a fun night and a good cause.
The Project K students will be waiting at the event and will help Blenheim chef Chris Fortune prepare his auction item of a dinner for 10 cooked by him in the winning bidder's home.
Harcourts Marlborough real estate agent Aaron Davis will be the auctioneer and Project K founder and mountaineer Graeme Dingle will explain the programme.
The event will be at The Marlborough Convention Centre on August 19 at 7pm. Tickets cost $35 which includes wine and finger food.
