The Bosun Challenge

Britannia Yacht Club - 26 Jun 19 General

Successful single-handed crossing of the Channel

RNSA's Phil Slade completed a successful crossing from Dartmouth to St Peter Port in his Bosun Dinghy early yesterday morning and, despite fickle winds and a torrential downpour at one point, he made good time. Unfortunately the strong easterly winds forecast for the next 3 days mean that he will not be able to continue on to Jersey and, as the Contessas providing safety cover had to return to the College by the weekend, we will not be able to complete the Challenge on this occasion. However, this does not detract from Phil's amazing achievement which includes the fact that so far he has raised over £1000 for the RN & RM Charity. Hopefully there are still more donations to come towards this worthy cause which supports serving and ex service personnel and their families. There is still time to show your support for Phil's great achievement by making a donation now. Please clink the link below to make a donation.
