LEGENDARY sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston has raised more than £2,000 for charity after auctioning off a teddy bear.
The veteran sailor, 75, finished third after racing in the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe race in November.
He also raised money by auctioning off his shorts that had come with him on his 20-day solo voyage.
They raised £165 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
More than 40 years have gone by since Sir Robin made history by becoming the first man to sail solo and non-stop around the globe in 1968-69.
He runs the international Clipper Race, based in Gosport.
