Long Standing Ambition - the book of the Round Britain adventure is
2015 was a very good year in the life of Jono Dunnett. To those who helped make it that, thank you does not really seem sufficient. But insufficient is better than unsaid - so here goes...
I set out from Clacton 98 days ago and turned right. I kept on sailing every day I could. I had the best 3 months of my life.
He did it! Yesterday Jono completed his circumnavigation of Britain, unaided, alone, by windsurfer, the first person ever to achieve the feat.
Slowing up ready for a stage-managed finish, I have some time to look over the pictures from the last 3 months, and share a few.
This really is the home stretch now. After being holed up with strong winds, swell, and a headache from the town centre ammusements, in Skegness - I was keen to get moving again.
Barring disasters, Jono is now within easy sailing distance of his finish line at Clacton on Sea pier, allowing the luxury of a planned finish to the adventure.
Progress down the east coast may have appeared rather regular and untroubled. Certainly I haven't been feeling the pressure of time.
