Following 94 days at sea, the A&B Coast Guard escorted Graham into Nelson’s Dockyard, and to a new reality – considering the current global climate that COVID-19 has created. While Graham has been getting updates on the changing world from his wife throughout his row, it’s a big difference to what was normal when he started his row three months ago.
Following a warm welcome by supporters in dinghies, and blaring superyacht horns, Graham enjoyed a well-deserved burger alongside champagne. Now, Graham will have to self-isolate, and wait until travel restrictions are lifted to return home to the UK.

Congratulations Graham and welcome to Antigua!
