Nipegegi Round Britain - with Will Hodshon

DATE: 19.00, Friday 2nd May
LOCATION: Cowes Clubhouse

We welcome Will Hodshon to the RORC Cowes Clubhouse, who will talk about his record-breaking circumnavigation of mainland Britain in the Hodshon’s 60-year-old, 16-foot Wayfarer sailing dinghy, Nipegegi.

He and longstanding friend Rich Mitchell completed the expedition both non-stop and unassisted on 1st July last year, after only 15 days at sea, smashing previous records.

It was a remarkable feat of endurance and seamanship. The expedition aimed to raise funds for the Water Smart Foundation who are in turn presenting the funds to two ocean minded charities (RNLI and Surfers Against Sewage).

Come along and hear him describe the challenges of this amazing adventure!
