#srbi – Irish offshore sailors Liam Coyne and Brian Flahive will relive their stunning Round Britain and Ireland voyage next Wednesday night at 8pm in Poolbeg Yacht Club on the River Liffey. In the same week the pair will deliver the talk again on Friday night at Wicklow Sailing Club at 8pm. It's a chance for those that missed the first sell out talk at the National Yacht Club last October to hear about one of the stand out offshore victories of 2014.
For twelve days, Ireland's sailing and maritime community followed with bated breath while the fortunes of Liam Coyne and Brian Flahive with the First 36.7 Lula Belle waxed and waned in the storm-tossed 1802-mile RORC Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race. Read the full story here.
Coyne and Flahive were awarded Afloat sailor of the month awards for the achievement in September.
