Conor OBrien [sic] circumnavigated the earth between 1923 and 1925 in Saoirse, a sailing boat built in Baltimore to his own design. He was the first to sail around the world from West to East in a small private craft south of the three great capes.
He set off from Dun Laoghaire on 20 June, and a centenary commemoration is planned for next year. The centrepiece will be the arrival of the rebuilt Saoirse from Baltimore.
Vincent Murphy will tell us about the man, the voyage and the boat on Wednesday 23 November at 19:30.
CAI has a Zoom account, and we open a room regularly every Wednesday night during the winter from 19:30.
Sometimes we invite speakers to give us presentations, webinar style, with questions.
When there’s no speaker we still open the room, and members are welcome to drop in for a chat.
