Halifax, next port en route

Skipper of Lively Lady, Alan Priddy, co-skipper Steve Mason from Portsmouth and two young adults have set sail from St John’s, Newfoundland to Nova Scotia

Fiona Pankhurst, of Raymarine said: ‘We are delighted to have brought a modern touch to an old classic. Raymarine has been involved with this project from the start, providing essential navigational and autopilot equipment for Lively Lady and, through our increased role, we’ll also be providing extensive support for the crew as they sail around the world. It is a highly inspirational challenge that will enrich the lives of a large number of young people.’

Alan Priddy said: ‘As we sail around the world, we’re continuing Sir Alec Rose’s legacy to young people, using Lively Lady to help give them a new start in life. That was my dream when we started this project more than two years ago and it’s wonderful to see all the hard work that so many people have put in finally come to fruition.’
