The Wheelhouse – Keith White sails single-handed. Literally.

The Wheelhouse – Keith White sails single-handed. Literally.

One of Mike’s favourite interviews from 25 years of making radio programmes. Keith White is more than merely an inspirational character, he is an unstoppable force. Don’t let his mild, rather laconic manner fool you, he is as tough a human being as you’ll ever hear talking. In this interview Keith recounts how he gained his disability, how he lives to inspire his seven children and how he plans to circumnavigate the globe in nineteenth century style aboard a ship crewed entirely by disadvantaged children and people with disabilities.
This programme is jaw-dropping, heart-warming and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. Don’t miss the chance to dip into the extraordinary life of the inimitable Keith White.

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.
