A documentary on disabled sailor Geoff Holt's record-breaking trans-Atlantic crossing is to be shown on national TV this weekend.

The 30-minute film was made by Digby Fox, who joined the 44-year-old on the 2,700 mile journey, which finished in Tortola in the Caribbean in January.

The film is showing several times over the weekend on the BBC News channel.

Mr Holt, from Shedfield, near Fareham, said: 'Digby has done a fantastic job, I've seen it and it's a great piece of work.'

Earlier this month Mr Holt was made an MBE for his work in disabled sailing.
