I painted this picture for my son, Ian, who is Skipper of the Unicef UK boat in the Round the World Clipper Race. This race is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world, and an endurance test like no other -
a record breaking 40,000 nautical miles around the world, on a 70 foot ocean racing yacht! Whilst doing this, all the teams are raising funds for Unicef,
a charity helping children all over the World.
The 100 x 120 cm painting was auctioned prior to
the race start by the Unicef Team at St. Katherine's Dock, London (very near Tower Bridge), where it raised a magnificent £4000, all of which goes directly to the charity.
I am so pleased that I could be part of this, and look forward to welcoming the teams home next summer
