Disabled Yachtsman Keith White’s World Challenge 2015

Sailing Single-handed, non stop around the world.

World Challenge

World Map

Disabled yachtsman to sail single handed and non stop around the world. The route itself is straightforward. Keith  will sail around the world from west to east via the great Capes of Good Hope, Leeuwin and the Horn.

But with only the use of one arm, this will be the biggest challenge of his life. For 10 months Keith will sail alone, heading south in the Atlantic, across the bay of Biscay, the Doldrums and into the southern hemisphere. Keith will brace himself for the perilous voyage across the Southern Oceans with its huge swells, savage storms and tumultuous seas. Keith will then take on the mighty Cape Horn before finally sailing north up the Atlantic back to Great Britain.
