He is truly remarkable. On his first day out in the round Britain challenge he suffered a capsize that left him face down in the water. Thanks to the excellent quick response of his support team he was quickly recovered. Undetered, he just carried on with the project. Now that's ballsy.

Bloody terrifying and ballsy indeed
