Around Great Britain Cruise : Scotland back to Southampton with Michael Goodwin

Event Date: 13 - March - 2018

Location: Stafford Boat Club

Michael, with his good friend Roger Colmer, has now completed the challenge to sail around Great Britain to raise money for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. 

Previously we heard about setting sail from Hythe Marina on Southampton Water on the 17th May 2015 in 'Blue Star', a 37' Bavaria, up the east coast of Britain and over-wintering in Greenock.  Mike now continues the journey returning to Hythe on Saturday 17th September 2016.

Once again Mike and Roger were joined by various friends, acquaitances and relatives to crew for different stages of the journey.

Volunteers working for the CF Trust’s Southampton Branch showed great interested in Mike's circumnavigation of Britain; they themselves were keen sailors and some were parents of children with CF. As members of the Royal Southern Yacht Club based in Hamble, they invited Mike to give a talk on his sail around Britain within their programme of social meetings.  A collection for CF was made at that meeting and Mike was presented with a substantial cheque.
