The 42-year-old began his trip on December 10, 2008 on his boat named The Impossible Dream. He did all his own sailing. A cameraman and a care attendant were also aboard. He ran into light winds and engine problems during the trip.
Geoff sailed the Atlantic Ocean three times before, but this is the first time since his accident in 1984.
On his blog, he wrote:
"I want my arrival to be a celebration of the past 25 years not, as someone asked recently, "will it give you closure"?... That infers I somehow regret or lament the past 25 years. Absolutely not. Were it not for the accident, I would not have met Elaine, had Timothy or had such a wonderful life so, closure? No. Celebration? Yes."
