Geoff Holt sailing the Atlantic at Day 8

Posted By on December 20, 2009

For need of inspiration, I’m following a British sailor on his boat Impossible Dream with a few more physical challenges to sailing than most of us. Geoff Holt has refused to let being a quadriplegic prevent him from attempting a sail across the Atlantic, although is finding it challenging. I’ve been following his upbeat attitude in getting his sea legs comfortable with life in a wheelchair at sea while facing the rolling swells from the UK to the Cape Verde islands. Impossible Dream arrived there this weekend according to a recent ‘tweet.’ Below is his Day 8 video log post.

Fair winds Geoff Holt … and my admiration to his crew Susana as well.
