Cumbrian teenager Jonny Moore hopes to sail solo round Great Britain. Planning to leave Holyhead, North Wales, around the 21/22 June, Jonny intends to sail clockwise round the British Isles in his Corribee 21,Casulen II.He hopes to use the trip to raise funds for the Kendal Sea Cadet Corps, where he learned to sail aged 10.

On his website, Jonny says that he sees sailing around Britain “as something I can personally achieve at this stage, and also as a stepping off point for more shorthanded offshore sailing”.
