Huge Congratulations to Trustee David Gregg and the crew of yacht Alcedo!

In a torrential squall, Alcedo swept across the finish line off St Lucia at 0612 on 12th December 2013.
Their overall time for the Atlantic crossing was 17 days, 20 hours and 48 minutes travelling 2959 nautical miles.

Thank you for all the incredibly generous donations in support of David’s epic voyage.

An excerpt from David’s blog:
” Dark waves as tall as houses were sweeping in from the North East, blotting out the horizon with white crests curling and breaking as they swooped down on the yacht. The rising wind whistled in the rigging. Alcedo was in her element, rising to meet the steep seas, shouldering aside the crests and plunging into the troughs beyond”
