My story

[p]Thank you to all who have already donated something to the charity Rainbow Living, for which I am raising money. They help create high quality, personalised accommodation for young adults with Learning Difficulties. Details of the wonderful projects they support are on their web site. There is a link below.[/p][p]I started sailing just 13 years ago firstly with a 14ft dinghy, then a 26ft boat, now a 32ft Westerly Fulmar. A shore-based Yachtmaster qualification has been backed up with over 10,000 nautical miles practical experience, a lot of it singlehanded, mostly on the south coast from the Solent to the Scillies and across to northern France. [/p][p]Sailing singlehanded around Britain was a big step up in terms of my sailing career and a big challenge for a skipper who is now 70 years old! Im pleased to say that my 41 year old boat, Thalmia, took it in her stride![/p][p]Because of COVID-19 the challenge could not be undertaken in 2020 but in April 2021 the challenge began! Now I’m on the final leg! The finish line at Starcross Yacht Club is just a day sail away![/p][p]Thank you again for your support and donations to Rainbow Living. Your generosity has been a big incentive along the way! You can catch up with my adventures - the good bits and the challenges (!) on my blog at: [url=http://voyagesofthalmia.org/2021/07/23/the-grand-finale/]http://voyagesofthalmia.org/2021/07/23/the-grand-finale/[/url][/p][p][br][/p]
