Cribby handed over a cheque for nearly £11,000 to the Ellen MacArthur Trust this month, the money raised from the legendary Channel Crossing that he made last year with Antoine Albeau.

Ellen interviewed him on stage about the crossing in front of some 250 people, including many of the children her charity supports, before she set off on Scarlet Oyster sailing around the UK taking youngsters recovering from cancer and lukaemia sailing and visiting children's hospitals around the UK, check out

"An enormous thanks to all the generous windsurfers who supported the Channel Crossing with their tremendous donations. We raised an incredible amount and I am honored to represent you all at this presentation. The event was the single largest fund raising event for the Ellen MacArthur Trust last year, so will be a tremendous boost to children all over the UK recovering from serious illness." Guy Cribb.
