The Challenge

On August 21st 2021 I began 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.

The entire trip will be recorded and documented from start to finish, from preparation of Waxwing to upgrades, fitting new equipment, sea trials and then the trip itself.
I have been working non-stop on this project for two years. Preparing waxwing for the circumnavigation. I have waxwing almost ready and will be showing you all of my updates on my channel.

I will also have a live tracker for people to follow my position and progress live, this will be available to view as soon as I set sail.
