Derek sets sail

We are thrilled to report that Derek has now set off on his epic 2,000(ish) mile solo sail around Britain to raise funds for Rainbow Living!
Derek launched from Starcross Yacht Club in the early hours of 20th April, heading east towards Ramsgate via the Solent before heading north to Scotland. Then he hopes to take a short break before returning via Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Wales, and then back to the familiar southwest coastline.
The circumnavigation is expected to take three months and we look forward to keeping updated on Derek's progress.
