Sir Francis Chichester took part in the first Trans-Atlantic solo-sailing race back in 1960 and indeed was the winner. This year is the 50th anniversary and so it is with honour that I follow in the wake of Chichester and his yacht Gypsy Moth III to take on the Challenge of the North Atlantic and to raise money for the charity that Francis left behind as his legacy. My aim is to inspire todays youth to reach for their dreams as I was shown when I was a lad. the Francis Chichester Trust sends underprivileged youths on Outward Bound courses to help discover themselves through adventure.For regular updates of Rory's challenge please follow www.roryandcookie.blogspot.comThanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
