Charity Stars, the United Kingdom’s leading charity auction site, is offering Walker’s personal IWC Schaffhausen Portuguese Yacht Club Chronograph Ocean Racer watch, worn during the current Volvo Ocean Race.

The prize also includes the opportunity to experience the race as a member of the crew during the finale in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Today is the final day to lodge your bid as the auction closes on June 23.

The winning bidder will be hosted in Gothenburg, Sweden for two nights from 25-27 June 2015 (excluding flights and transfers). Whilst in Gothenburg they will participate in a sailing race on board Azzam, the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing boat, and receive the one-of-a-kind timepiece from skipper Walker himself.

The watch alone is worth just under £10,000 and bidding on the CharityStars website starts at just £7,500 for the opportunity to meet Walker, participate in the sailing race and receive the limited edition watch itself.

Walker is the current skipper for Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing.
