On the home straight

After departing the Isle of Man, Derek sailed the coast of Wales and around the South West coastline - and he is now on the home straight!

Derek aims to return to his starting point of Starcross Yacht Club within the next 7 days – some 13 weeks after setting off! We will keep you updated on his return, and we are so looking forward to seeing Derek and celebrating his amazing achievement of sailing solo around Britain.

A huge THANK YOU to Derek for everything, and to all you lovely people who have supported him. He has already smashed his fundraising target, having raised £2,315!! Derek is now aiming to raise £2,500 - if you haven’t already and would like to, you can make a donation on his fundraising page - just £185 to go!
