I plan in the summer of 2008 to sail singlehanded around Britain. I hope to sail for 7-8 hours a day and then stay in harbours and safe anchorages overnight. At this time I see this challenge achievable and will be a great experience.
I am in Yr 11 so I do not have any working binds or other commitments which may restrict me completing the challenge later in life. My main reason for the trip is to raise as much money as possible for Sailability which I think is a great cause helping less able people to experience the joys of sailing.
I have chosen to sail a Corribee, with their renowned sea keeping capabilities and traditional yacht characteristics it seemed an excellent choice. The boat that I have purchased is a Mk II Newbridge Corribee called ‘Padiwak’.
I will be setting off as soon as I have finished my GCSEs next year and I will then have 10 weeks to complete the challenge.
