Round Britain, Timothy Long

In the summer of 2020, Timothy sailed around Britain, single-handed, at 15 years of age. This presentation covers his trip, which started on the 16th July 2020 from Hamble Point Marina from which he followed an anti-clockwise route around the country. Exactly 11 weeks later he arrived back in the Hamble after what he describes as 'an incredible adventure!'.

This is certain to be a captivating talk as the Yachting Journalists’ Association (YJA) announced on 1 September that Timothy has been nominated for the YJA Stoneways Marine Young Journalist of the Year for the blogs he wrote about his journey.
