2016 April 16, "Practical
Boat Owner", Laura Hodgetts: Round the
Baltic in a Mini Transat, April 15, 2016, A retired soldier is gearing up to
sail a 21ft Mini Transat around the Baltic Sea to raise money for charities.
Richard Keeling is due to set sail on Thursday 5 May. The 42-year-old commercial
yachtmaster and instructor lives in a small village called Maxton in the Scottish
borders and has ‘sailed for a very long time.’ Richard will be sailing
to Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the rest of the Baltic in the 21ft boat.
His chosen soldiers’ charities are Help for Heroes and Sail for Life.
Richard said: ‘Help for Heroes needs no introduction,
Sail for Life has an interesting history. It’s run by Andy Christie who
like me is an old soldier, so was his brother who tragically took his own life
after leaving the army. This obviously hit Andy pretty hard and so he sold everything
he had to buy a couple of small boats which he uses to take troubled ex-servicemen
sailing to help keep them busy and take their mind off more negative thoughts.
You wont hear anything about his charity – it has no fancy offices or
websites or PR staff, just Andy doing his bit where he can. ‘So soon Ill
be setting off for Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the rest of the Baltic
in a 21ft boat, for the worthy causes.’ Richard added: ‘Here
is the donation link for Andy’s charity, its not as slick as Help for
Heroes but he’s a good guy with a big heart and I can assure you not a
penny will be wasted: www.gofundme.com/sailforlife.’ Follow Richard’s
progress via his Facebook page Meteor 363.
