Ludo arrives back in Cowes after 75 days at sea circumnavigating Britain
Posted on 13/07/2012
Ludo Bennett- Jones, aged 21, arrived in Cowes on the Isle of Wight yesterday, Thursday July 12, after circling Britain in a 16ft Wayfarer. In doing so Ludo has broken two records by becoming the youngest and fastest person to sail a two-handed dinghy around Britain.
He set sail from East Cowes on 28 April and has completed the 2,500-mile circumnavigation in one of the wettest summers on record.
Ludo's boat has been sponsored by BT and in doing the challenge he has raised a staggering £37,000 for two charities, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and Sport Relief.
Among the legs he undertook was crossing the Bristol Channel, rounding of Cape Wrath and crossing the Irish Sea via the Isle of Man.
He will have been away for 76 consecutive days, sailing with several different crew members to help him complete the challenge.
Among those in Cowes to greet Ludo were Gill chairman, Nick Gill and Dame Ellen MacArthur along with a growing army of supporters that have been following his progress around the coast.
