Gerry Hughes is the first profoundly deaf man to sail single-handed around the world and across the Atlantic Ocean. In 2019 he published a book about his life called ‘Bridging Our Differences’.

Gerry is known internationally as a Deaf role model, not only for his sailing achievements but for his work in education and sign language. This means that he is contacted by school pupils, school teachers, university interpreting students and well as people interested in sailing. So much of the content of the previous websites is a valuable resource for people.
