We did it
On 7th August 2016 we successfully raised £25 with 1 supporters in 28 days

Alex Alley is aiming to break the solo non-stop round the world sailing record for a 40' yacht. The current record is 137d 20h 1m 57s set by Chinese sailor Gou Chuan in an identical boat.

Alex already has one circumnavigation under his belt as well as the Length of Britain sailing record, set in December 2015 in his boat Pixel Flyer.

In order to raise funds for the record attempt, the team are offering people the chance to have their picture on the side of the boat for the duration of the campaign and 'sail around the world with us'.

Each 'pixel' is 5cm x 5cm and costs either £25 or £35 depending on the position on the hull (the top 4 rows are £35, all others are £25). You can group together more pixels for a bigger image on the boat.

Simply email your image to team@alexalley.com once you have pledged your support and once we reach the target your image will be printed on the hull and also on our team website.
