Quadriplegic sailor on track to complete UK solo sail
GEOFF REACHES THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER
Quadriplegic sailor, Geoff Holt, reached Dover tonight on the homeward
stretch of his attempt to be the first disabled person to sail around Great
Leaving Lowestoft this morning, Geoff sailed to Ramsgate. The weather was
so good for sailing that Geoff decided to get some more miles under his belt
and left Ramsgate this afternoon, arriving in Dover at 2015 hrs this evening
– a total sail of over 50 miles.
Geoff left Southampton on 20th May on a voyage which he describes as his own
‘Personal Everest’, but his progress around the coast has been hampered by
severe weather conditions.
Now that the weather is favourable Geoff is taking to the water every day in
an effort to finish his “Personal Everest” some time next week.
