I am delighted to announce that my first “local” sponsor has joined Team
Bendigedig Sailing, from now, and through to completion of the Global Solo
Challenge 2023/2024. Here are the word of Nigel Jones, a friend of mine, on
and off the water.
“The Nanteos team are over the moon at being able to announce our
involvement, through our Sponsor Partnership, with Dafydd Hughes’s entry in
the Global Solo Challenge. He will be circumnavigating the globe single
handed aboard his boat ‘Bendigedig’. Having known Dafydd for some years we
are not surprised at his entry to this Challenge, and look forward to
reporting his success. In addition to our sponsorship pledge assisting in
the purchase of materials for the boat refit, we will be holding
fund-raising evenings with Dafydd prior to the race start in 2023. We also
plan to raise further funding for and awareness of Coed Lleol who help to
improve the health and wellbeing of people across Wales though woodland and
nature based activities, a group close to Dafydd’s heart.
