Captain McStuffing

More used to powering through the waves than running round a track, this turkey will be looking to make a real splash in the race in its trademark yellow wellies.

Captain McStuffing's Story

Captain McStuffing grew up by the coast next to a lighthouse. As a youngster, they’d often wander off to watch heroes braving rough seas to rescue those in need. Captain McStuffing often imitated the RNLI heroes by rescuing toys from the many muddy puddles on the family farm.

Captain McStuffing’s dream of volunteering as an RNLI crew member ended when a boat trip confirmed that they weren’t blessed with sea legs.  Not one to give up on a dream Captain McStuffing, decided if they couldn’t join their yellow-wellied heroes at sea, they’d help save lives by raising money for the charity. They can’t wait to make waves and have gone seriously overboard with their training… (fish oil smoothie anyone?). The RNLI are so proud of Captain McStuffing's commitment to their cause that they have given them a pair of their very own RNLI wellies in which to compete. Captain McStuffing hopes that, come race day, everyone pushes the boat out to keep this great charity afloat.

About RNLI

We are the RNLI: the charity that saves lives at sea. RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,200 lives since 1824. We are separate from the Coastguard, independent of the Government and rely on our volunteers and supporters to run our lifesaving service.

In 2016 our lifeboat crews rescued an average of 23 people per day, saving 431 lives. 20,538 people were helped by RNLI lifeguards, 127 of these were lives saved. Every day of every year, people of all backgrounds get into danger in the water. We’re here to explain the risks, share safety knowledge, and educate people in how to protect themselves and their families. And our international teams work with like-minded organisations to help tackle drowning in at-risk communities around the world.
