In August 2021 I plan to sail solo, non-stop, unassisted around the world from Ireland back to Ireland via the 5 great capes.
I will be using a sextant and paper charts as my primary navigation tools.
If I am successful, I will be the first Irish person to complete a solo non-stop circumnavigation of the world.
I estimate the trip will take approximately 8 months nonstop. My yacht Waxwing is a Rival 41, she is a standard production offshore cruising yacht that I have upgraded for the challenge, She is perfect for this circumnavigation.
