WSSRC Record Attempt

Dave PARKER (22) has officially abandoned his attempt to break the Single-handed Round Ireland Sailing record.
It seems the damage to the boat's electrical systems is beyond simple repair. The decision was made after discussing the situation with Buncrana lifeboat, considering the local conditions and the limited time remaining.

Parker set off on 3 May 2005 in an attempt to beact the current record for the 708nm circumnavigation which stands at 7 days, 10 hours, 24 minutes and 7 seconds, set by Peter KEIG (GBR) in October 2001.

Dave is sponsored by the Dublin Docklands Development Authority and Dublin Port. News updates will be posted at
