Join us at Fratton Park, home of Portsmouth Football Club, for our February networking event to enjoy breakfast, a chance to meet members and guests, as well as hearing from our guest speaker, Geoff Holt MBE.
Geoff entered the history books in 2007 when he sailed solo around Great Britain – conquering what Geoff called his ‘personal Everest’. Paralysed from the neck down in an accident at the age of 18, Geoff’s sailing achievement was highly acclaimed. He continued to challenge what seems impossible and in 2010, became the first quadriplegic to sail unassisted across the Atlantic. Following these achievements came awards and recognition locally and globally, including an MBE for services to disabled sailing, and the coveted YJA Pantaenius Yachtsman of the Year (an award Geoff considers the ‘knighthood of yachting’).
In what’s set to be an inspiring talk, Geoff will talk about these achievements, as well as the work he does locally, after he founded the only motor boating charity in the UK, Wetwheels, which takes approximately 6000 people a year on the water via fully accessible boats to provide boating opportunities for all.
