Ellen Macarthur to greet 21-year-old
A 21-year-old from East Cowes will complete his sail around Britain tomorrow when he returns to his hometown after nearly three months at sea in a 16-foot dinghy.
And Dame Ellen (pictured above left with Mr Bennett-Jones), who herself sailed around Britain aged 19, will take Mr Bennett-Jones’ lines and he will then visit the offices of her charity at noon.
Mr Bennett-Jones will be the youngest and fastest to have circumnavigated Britain in a dinghy when he arrives home in his Wayfarer.
More details of his voyage, including pictures and information on how to donate, can be found at www.loveludo.com.
