Sailing Offer Promises Josse Day Out

The Frenchman’s 60-ft ocean racer, BT, will be berthed at Port Edgar Yacht Club, South Queensferry, a fortnight on Thursday.

Seb is a member of BT Team Ellen and will be arriving ahead of Dame Ellen MacArthur who, through The Ellen MacArthur Trust, is taking 85 young people recovering from cancer and leukaemia on a 2000 nautical mile sail round Britain. The Skandia Round Britain Voyage of Discovery will visit
