The first in a series of talks delivered by offshore yachtsman Tom Dolan will take place at the Royal Cork Yacht Club on Tuesday 20 November.

Tom — who is in the running for 2018 Irish Sailor of the Year — will review the highlights of his 2018 season, including his performance in the Transat AG2R and his first participation in the challenging Figaro du Solitaire, and outline his plans for 2019 and beyond.

The versatile skipper promises video clips from this year’s racing season combined with plenty of weather and sailing tips.

And he will also try to give some helpful insights into the world of offshore sailing, with the aim of helping younger or aspiring helms.

Places are limited for the first two talks, at the Royal Cork and National Yacht Club (on Tuesday 27 November), and demand is expected to be high. There will be a small entry fee at both events in aid of Focus Ireland.

Booking information will be shared on Tom’s Facebook and LinkedIn pages from Monday 12 November after priority booking for sponsors and partners.

Details on future talks will be released in the coming weeks.
