Two days ago Gary ‘Ted’ Sargent, a nephew of our own Charles Sargent started his attempt to single-handedly sail a Laser dinghy around the entire coastline of Ireland, starting and finishing in Schull, Co. Cork.

Challenge soft edges (small)The challenge will take place under the banner of ‘One Wild Ride’ and will raise funds for ChildVision, the only place in Ireland totally dedicated to the education and therapy needs of blind and multi-disabled children.

In addition to charitable fundraising, the challenge is intended to showcase sailing as a sport, our coastline heritage, and in the spirit of adventure, encourage others to challenge themselves and find their extraordinary.

Check out the One Wild Ride website to make a donation to this very worthwhile cause and follow Gary’s journey.
