Watch: STV’s 45 minute documentary of Deaf sailor Gerry Hughes’ round-the-world odyssey

Posted on September 12, 2013

We use the idea that something is “must see” rather too often – but if you don’t watch this, then you really are missing out.

On Tuesday night, a documentary covering all the ups and downs of Deaf sailor Gerry Hughes’ circumnavigation of the world was shown on Scottish television, and can be seen in full, for the next 28 days or so, online.

Congratulations to everyone involved, not least Gerry Hughes of course, but also, who captured the footage over the many months that Gerry was away!
