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.
I have been working non-stop on this project for two years, preparing waxwing for the circumnavigation. I have waxwing almost ready so far I paid for everything myself, all equipment, repairs and general expenses. Now money and preparation for the voyage are my main focus, so I ma looking for donations. I estimate I need €35,000 to finish this project.
