Deaf Sailor aims for Circumnavigation in Beneteau Boat

Many a sailor has attempted the fearsome feat of a solo sail around the world. Gerry Hughes is attempting this monstrous venture without the use of hearing he was born profoundly deaf.

On Saturday the 1st of September he will be boarding the 40ft Beneteau Sloop in his voyage to circumnavigate the seas of the globe. This individual feat has been accomplished by less than 300 sailors there are over 1500 that have conquered Everest!

Gerry teaches deaf pupils at a school in Glasgow, and was both the first deaf teacher in Scotland since 1880 and also the first deaf person to sail the Atlantic Ocean in the 2005 single-handed Transatlantic Race. He is embarking on this new challenge in the hope that it will inspire young deaf people to achieve their dreams and to generally raise awareness of the deaf community.

The voyage is due to last around 5 months, but under unknown weather conditions, could last over 7 months. He will be in contact with both the press and the public via his personal website; where you can track his progress, view his blog entries and watch him en-route.

We wish him all of the luck in the world and hope that his Beneteau boat brings him safely home to bask in his wonderful achievement.

Beneteau Boats

The Beneteau history dates back to 1884, and despite still having family origins involved with its running, Beneteau have evolved and diversified to produce sailing yachts and motor boats in virtually all categories of leisure craft. The current Beneteau range is split into 2 main areas; Sail Power, whilst their larger yachts are now under the guise of Monte Carlo Yachts.

Beneteau motor boats include the Antares and Flyer, whose models have been synonymous with Beneteau as far back as the 1960’s, though the modern variants bear minimal resemblance to their predecessors. During the early part of this century, Beneteau developed new and larger models, introducing both the Swift Trawler and Monte Carlo ranges to offer more substantial boats with greater cruising capability.

Beneteau Sailboats produce a range of fast cruising yachts, racing yachts and smaller single design sailboats ranging from 25′ to 58′ in length. The Benteau First and Oceanis ranges are very well established, with over 30 different previous models in each range in addition to the current models such as the new Beneteau First 30 and Oceanis 50 family.
