A resourceful Isle of Wight student recently sailed back to the Island after successfully completing a Masters Degree in Physical Geography at Aberystwyth University.

Joe Pearce bought 'Golden Cloud', a 23ft Falmouth Gypsy class, for £800 to reduce his living costs whilst studying.

On his return journey Joe stopped at several port's to raise awareness and support for the RNLI and the Isle of Wight Society for the Blind.
