Les Powles

Les Powles, now 85 and living aboard his beloved self-built yacht Solitaire in Lymington Yacht Haven, is an ordinary yachtsman with an extraordinary tale to tell. He won Yachtsman of the Year in 1981 in recognition of his amazing achievements, and after completing his last great adventure, Lymington Yacht Haven gave him a free berth for life.
