Video Sailing Islay to Ireland

Islay on Video written in stencil

Back in January I wrote about John Lynn's plan of sailing his Laser across the North Channel in memory of his late father. In April he went for it, unfortunately a few days before I arrived for my recent Islay visit. While I was on Islay a video from his crossing was published, unfortunately I had problems viewing it on the phone, so I'm catching up now:

YouTube: Port2Port - John Lynn's Lazer sail from Islay to Portush

The preview picture doesn't do it justice, there are some great shots of John in action, beautiful views of his Laser on the move. Brought back some memories for me as well (I used to sail a Laser in my youth). For more also read the report in the Belfast Telegraph: Dad sailed into folklore... my North Channel charity voyage was tribute to him

I believe John's JustGiving page in aid of the RNLI is still open, so you can still donate if you so wish. Great achievements John, congratulations!
