Bridging Our Differences by Gerry S M Hughes


Gerry’s remarkable story is captured in his book ‘Bridging our Differences’. Part autobiography, and part real-life adventure, ‘Bridging our Differences’, tells the story of a deaf young boy who battled against the odds to succeed in the ultimate sailing challenge and much much more.

“Gerry Hughes was the first deaf sailor to complete a solo circumnavigation of the globe starting and finishing in Troon. This achievement was the culmination of a lifetime’s ambition. Gerry’s book is a life-enhancing story of his overcoming the numerous hurdles which life put in his way.”
Raymond Williamson (Former Lord Dean of Guild of Glasgow)
