Peter Lawless Departs with Waxwing for Solo Sail Round the World

Peter Lawless departed from Kilrush Marina on Saturday 21 August 2021 to sail solo, non-stop, unassisted around the world from Ireland back to Ireland via the 5 great capes.

He will be using a sextant and paper charts as his primary navigation tools. 

The trip will take approximately 8 months nonstop and his chosen boat is a Rival 41, Waxwing, she is a standard production offshore cruising yacht that has been upgraded for the challenge.

You can follow Peter on the LIVE TRACKER HERE.

Irish Sailing's Gail MacAllister met with Peter back in April 2021 to have a relaxed chat about his plans and introduce us all to Waxwing.
