CONGRATULATIONS JIMMY CORNELL

Further to our article at the beginning of the month advising of Jimmy Cornell and “Aventura”’s successful transit of the North West Passage, we have now received word from the man himself advising that he has now arrived safely in London, having completed a 24,000 nm voyage.

The Tower Bridge was opened as it was last year, but this time to celebrate the conclusion of the loop, coming full circle from commencement on the 31st of May 2014. Mr Cornell muses that when he arrived in London in 1969 and saw the bridge for the first time, he never imagined that he would one day arrive back there on his own yacht to a hero’s welcome.
