Visit us at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2017

The RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show is the only show in the world dedicated exclusively to dinghy sailing. Taking place at Alexandra Palace, London over the weekend of 04-05 March 2017, the show features a packed schedule of talks and coaching sessions, and One Wild Ride will be there!

The boat and I will be on the Suzuki Main Stage. I'll tell you what drove me to singlehandedly sail my 13ft Laser Dinghy around Ireland’s unforgiving and exposed coastline, with engaging anecdotes, photos and never-before-seen video of the journey to the finish line.

Putting it in PERSPECTIVE

Sailing around Ireland in summer might sound like a great way to get a bit of sun on your face and I think it’s fair to say there’ll be smiles, sun and fun along the way. That considered, the One Wild Ride experience is certainly not going to be a holiday.

1500km around this ‘little country’ of ours is no small distance. In fact, it’s like jumping into a boat and sailing it from Dublin, to Lisbon, Portugal. Sobering.

Then there’s the minor detail that the boat we just metaphorically jumped into is little more than twice the size of your average household bath! Hmmm … not much room for lounging about.
