Golden Globe Race Countdown

A Solo, non-stop, unassisted round the world 30,000 mile race. Nine months at sea alone in a small boat, the Golden Globe Race is the longest and loneliest sporting event in the World. It will entail stepping back to the Golden Age of solo sailing, with no modern technology.

I will sail the race in the sprit of Edward Conor Marshall O’Brien, the first skipper to take a small boat around the world via the three great southern capes. O’Briens voyage began and ended at the Port of Foynes, County Limerick, Ireland. I will bring with me the candle holder that Conor had with him on his journey.

This race is a fantastic challenge, over the next two years in preparation for this unbelievable adventure, I plan to sail to Iceland and America, in the wake of St Brendan the Navigator.

Really nice people.I stopped by another special place on my way home. Conor O Brien’s grave. In 1923 he was the first yacht to ceremnavagate the globe 🌎 via the 3 capes. One of my heroes. It was an emotional day. Paddy and Conor are behind me ❤️☘️❤️. Love and light to all See MoreSee Less
