This August, Nite Watches is teaming up with explorer Dave Cornthwaite to offer visitors to the Nite website the opportunity to win prizes that celebrate his adventures. The competition is the latest in a line of contests that have seen visitors to the Nite site win over £16,000 in prizes this year.
Adventurer, speaker and author, British adventurer Dave Cornthwaite combines his passion for sport and travel to encourage people to look after their own little corner of the planet by as he says ‘thinking big, staying healthy and smiling as much as possible’.
Dave’s current project sees him undertaking an ambitious set of 25 journeys by non-motorised means, each of at least 1,000 miles. About to start trip seven, Dave’s trips have taken in skateboarding over 3,600 miles in Australia, paddle boarding for 2,400 miles down the Mississippi and cycling 1,396 miles from Vancouver to Las Vegas amongst other challenges.
Dave has been supported by Nite Watches and wears a VISION VS2 Chronograph model, an outdoor watch that’s accompanied him on several of his most testing challenges including a navigation of the Mississippi and on his amazing voyage from Mexico to Hawaii. Nite continues to support Dave in his adventures and will be right behind him as he takes on his next challenge to swim over 1,000 miles down the Missouri River.
Roger Green of Nite Watches commented: “Dave is an inspiration to the team at Nite. He’s relentless and needs a tough watch that is capable of keeping up with him through his challenges and we are proud to be his chosen watch partner.
“We’ll be supporting Dave as he takes on the Missouri and the team at Nite will be reporting back on his progress via the website, Facebook and Twitter. The competition will also be a great opportunity for those who don’t know Dave to find out more about his adventures and of course, win some great kit.”
