When we reached the gentleman he didn't want us there, he wanted to carry on his way. His boat was not properly rigged so he was just getting battered, he was at the mercy of the elements. He didn't have a life-jacket, just a buoyancy aid and the vessel didn't have any lights.
All he had on was a bag of personal belongings which were a few odds and ends, a bag of biscuits, beans and hot dogs and a bag with his passport in.
He was obviously suffering from the first signs of hypothermia. He was only wearing a pack-a-mac jacket and leggings. He was absolutely sodden.
I ended up cuddling him at the back of the boat to keep him warm. He would have died, he was severely sea sick, he had the first signs of hypothermia and his boat was filling up with water.

“We are very excited to be opening this exhibition, which has been created by volunteers and a genuine community partnership. The stories being told are fascinating, engaging and moving – and more stories are emerging each week from the research being carried out and through members of the community coming forward with letters and memories.
