“Inspirational” is the word that has leapt out of every set of reports and comments about Enda O’Coineen’s achievement in getting the IMOCA 60 Souffle du Nord/Team Ireland to Les Sables-d’Olonne on Sunday.

Although his lone voyage from New Zealand to France may have started on January 27th and finished on April 1st, it was during the final stages in March that he overcame the Atlantic at its most challenging to bring his ship home to a port which truly appreciates his courage and tenacity, making him a very worthy “Sailor of the Month”.
