In June 2019, Joan Mulloy from Westport in Mayo completed her second Solitaire du Figaro race in France. This solo offshore race is one of the most gruelling offshore races with 4 legs races around the busy coastal waters of Europe. She competes to gain experience for her ultimate goal – to compete in the Vendée Globe solo around the world race. Her talk will be about life at sea as a solo sailor, as well as about her campaign, and how she plans to achieve her future goals.
Joan will be in the club Thursday 22nd evening to give a talk 8.00pm
