Matthew Wright 25 days -2750 nm – made landfall in Cascais in Portugal

Another Entrant ticks the all important box! Completing their 2000 mile solo qualifier in their entered yacht. It is an important milestone in making the start. There are many reasons to give up on a dream and the #GGR2022 pushes all those who enter to the limit. Not all those currently entered will make the start and some who do will not make the finish. The GGR is tough and all about the stories 🙂
