UK blind-man becomes a powerboat captain

A Liverpool man who lost his sight aged 30 has become the UK’s first blind licensed power boat captain after conquering his fear of water.

Dave Kelly, 59, from Anfield lost his sight suddenly over a two week period aged 30 – something he had been told aged 17 would happen.

Now Dave has conquered his long held fear of the water to become a licensed powerboat captain – the first blind person to achieve the feat in the UK after undertaking his training in West Kirby earlier this month.
