A CHALLENGE with a difference and for a great cause has been launched by experienced Argyll sailor Joey Gough with his First 32s5 yacht Tangle o’ the Isles.

He has enlisted three similarly experienced sailors to raise funds for BBC Children in Need 2019 and plans to sail for six days non-stop around the Island of Mull this November.

The Tangle team will start when the BBC Children’s Rickshaw Challenge starts and circumnavigate the island non-stop till the end of the Challenge on 15 November. The current start date is assumed to be 10 November but will not be confirmed by the BBC until October.
