Going solo

10th February 2016

Huge congratulations to former Cygnet member and kit man Matteo Perucchini who completed the Talisker Atlantic Challenge today (Thursday 10th Feb) in his boat Sogno Atlantico

Not only was he the fastest solo competitor in the race but he also finished in a record solo time of 52 days, 3 hours and 26 minutes.

If you look very closely, you'll see a little Cygnet logo on the hull under the port rowlock. This is due to our very small contribution towards his challenge but his main objective was to raise money for CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young. If you would like to make a donation towards this worthwhile charity you can do so via his website.
