Dave Sykes has done it!

Dave Sykes has done it!

He's done it! Dave Sykes has reached Newcastle, Australia after 119 days.

Dave set off from Rufforth on 28 April 2011 on a journey which would take him through 20 different countries before finally arriving in Australia. 

The journey had never before been completed by a paraplegic, let alone solo. This outstanding achievement is testament to Dave's endurance and determination to complete the trip.

BMAA is delighted to award Dave the 'Chairman's Trophy' in recognition of his 'outstanding and heroic personal achievement'. 

Congratulations from us all!

Rob Hughes
BMAA Chairman
