Long Time to Dun Laoghaire

Sailing alone

Many of our members choose to sail alone or short-handed, and we recognise the extra challenges this brings. We should celebrate the achievements of these coastal cruisers.

Meanwhile, more epic tales are unfolding.

Golden Globe Race

Congratulations to Simon Curwen and Kirsten Neuschäfer on finishing their unassisted solo circumnavigation of the earth. Simon was first across the line, but because he had help with his self steering gear the winner is Kirsten.

Ireland’s best known Figaro sailor Tom Dolan plans to break the record for sailing alone round Ireland. He’s aiming to do it in about three days – unseemly haste, perhaps, but we wish him well. He’s on standby in Greystones.
