Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2005-2006

Sexagenarian Grandmother of three, Eileen SKELLY is causing quite a stir in the media, with a full page spread in the British broadsheet the Daily Telegraph and expected coverage on national radio and TV in the coming days and weeks. Her transatlantic race on Liverpool 08 in the Clipper 05-06 Round the World Yacht Race is attracting something of a cult following with the Race Press Office inundated with messages of interest and well wishes cheering on the inspirational Eileen.
That Eileen is turning in to such a media starlet is no surprise: an ambitious and adventurous woman with bags of energy and a love for life, she does not see herself resting after this epic adventure. With dreams of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and back-packing across New Zealand her star is certainly on the rise.
