Return of Round The World Young yachtsman

I have been in contact with the guys behind Mike Perham and his return to The Solent and Portsmouth Gunwharf. http://www.totallymoney.com/sailmike/

He will officially cross a line at Falmouth and sail on to his home port for I hope a great welcome back.

Presently the 29th August looks like a possible date for 1100hrs into the harbour but the day may change either way due to 2500 miles to go and the weather, winds and tides.
I hope many here will want to come out and salute this young mans achievements. I will post dates and updates as I get them.

Latest Updates

Mike at present is looking to arrive at Gunwharf Quay Portsmouth on SATURDAY 29TH AUGUST.

I guess this will change with any weather issues for or against him. Initial plans were an 1100 arrival but not sure if up the Solent or round the Island and in via Bembridge.

updates

17 year-old British sailor Mike Perham is now within a day of becoming the youngest person to sail single-handed around the world. He now expects his 50ft yacht Totallymoney.com to reach the Lizard line marking the start and finish point of his 30,000 mile record-setting odyssey between 08:30 and 09:30 local Thursday morning - two months inside the current record.

He still plans to arrive at Gunwharf Quay at Portsmouth for 1100 on Saturday 29th August. Anyone going out would be good to show a real greeting to him. Not sure if he will go up The Solent as the powerboat racing is on, and it may depend on Tides.

An excellent achievement & well done to him.

However, Rule 5 of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (1972)
clearly states that:
"Every vessel shall at all times maintain a proper look-out by sight and hearing as well as by all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of the risk of collision"

How does a single handed yachtsman comply with this regulation & what are the consequences (for the other vessel) if he is involved in a collision with another vessel?
