Because we are living longer and our population is aging the prevalence of Alzheimer’s and Dementia is increasing. I have an opportunity to dedicate 18 months of my life to raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK. I am funding this expensive adventure myself so 100% of all donations will go direct to this truly worthwhile charity. Last year I had a knee replacement and 10 years ago prostate cancer however I believe that with my positive adventurous attitude, my strength and my vast sailing experience I can at the age of 70 be the oldest person to row the Atlantic and do it single handed. I have sailed this route 3 times at this time of year in my own yacht. Got the boat and I love it!
