My story

<p>At noon on the 5th December 2011 Andrew set off to race solo across the Atlantic Ocean, in a bid to raise <span style="color: #ee3a43;"><strong>&pound;100,000</strong></span><strong>&nbsp;</strong> for disadvantaged children and after 2 years of training, preparation and fund raising. <br /><br />40 days 9 hours and 44 minutes later and crossed the finish line, breaking the previous record for the Atlantic solo crossing, set in 2004, by well over 2 days, and taking 2nd place in the race behind the leaders by only 26 minutes.</p> <p>Hi, thanks for visiting my page.
