Richard Kerswell is making a solo trip around Britain in his yacht Pegasus in aid of Give the World a Shot (Covid Vaccines for third world countries) and Orphans in the Wild (HIV charity for orphans and foster families in the Mufindi, Tanzania).
Richard arrives in Kirkwall at the marina at 7pm this evening, 8th August, (all being well) having left Penzance on 24th of June moving round the coast and calling in at many places on the way. From Orkney he will sail onto Shetland.
You can follow his progress on his Facebook page: Pegasuses places

Give the world a shot is a crowdfunder to “help UNICEF deliver 2 billion vaccines, as well as millions of treatments around the world this year. Because we’ll only ever be safe, if we’re all safe”
Orphans in the Wild is a charity to provide support for families in Mufindi and Tanzania devastated by HIV and Aids.
