ISLAND sailor Adam Periera is less than 250 miles from New York, having set sail from Cowes six weeks ago.
Adam's route has veered off course on several occasions and this gruelling solo voyage has taken longer than expected.
Trustee of the Royal London Yacht Club, Rodney Barton, said: "He has taken a little longer than expected but he has had more than his fair share of head winds and at times no wind at all."
Adam, who has diabetes, is completing the trip in the hopes of raising £10,000 for Diabetes UK.
