Geoff’s association with Raymarine dates to the late 1990s when they provided him with essential marine electronics for his circumnavigation of the Isle of Wight in his challenger trimaran. 10 years later, Raymarine were Geoff’s marine electronics of choice when he circumnavigated around Great Britain, a voyage that took 110 days to sail 1500 miles in his 15ft Challenger trimaran. Raymarine provided all navigational and communication equipment for Geoff, his lifeboat and shore crew.
Two years later, Raymarine were to provide a complete suite of marine electronics on board Impossible Dream, the 20 m catamaran Geoff sailed across the Atlantic Ocean using his wheelchair, a 3,000 mile voyage that took four weeks.
More recently, from 2011, Raymarine have been the sole provider of marine electronics to all Wetwheels boats. Raymarine are currently working with Geoff and his team to develop a steering systems for those with very weak arm movement or unable to move their arms at all, including gyroscopic steering.
