Wicklow Sailing Club recently welcomed prolific member Charlie Kavanagh to the club to chat about his adventures on his boat Stravaiger.
n 2021, Charlieundertook a epic journey, sailing solo from Sweden via Norway, the North Sea and Scotland and home to Ireland. It was a huge voyage of 1300 miles.
Charlie shared his story to a packed clubhouse of fellow sailors and friends. Talking through his route and stops along the way, it made for a fascinating insight into sailing solo and how one man’s determination to make it home can conquer all.
The evening raised a €420 for the RNLI, who were there on the night and themselves donated a hamper for the raffle, which also included vouchers donated by Bridge Street Books and The Sports Room.
