About the Author:

Keith lives on the Isle of Wight and is an accomplished solo offshore Yachtsman. He lost the use of his left arm in a motorway accident in 1991, so he really is your genuine single handed yachtsman. What is incredible is that not only has his disability not prevented him from living his dreams, it’s spurred him on to better things. In 2015 he takes on the pinnacle of solo sailing by sailing single-handed and non stop around the world in his World Challenge.

    Well, why not have a world tour? Hope everything is ok, but it would be silly to press on regardless if it were not. What;s the weather like in the Cape Verde Islands at this time of year? And have you sent over a turkey and stuffing and crackers?

    ITtlooks as if Keith is now back on track, and heading pretty much due south, so whatever had caused him to turn back has, presumably, been overcome. Julian or anyone, do you have an update, please?

    Best Wishes
