Gerry Hughes – first Deaf man from Britain to circumnavigate the globe!!
There were emotional scenes shortly after midday today in Troon, Scotland, with the return of Deaf sailor Gerry Hughes after over 8 months at sea.
On Monday, Gerry became the first Deaf man from Britain to circumnavigate the globe. He is the first Deaf man in the world to do so via the five capes. In doing so he has become an inspirational figure to the Deaf community, who has had everyone saying “Go Go Go Gerry!”
