There have been some remarkable round Ireland circuits in extra-small and often unusual craft over the years, but a new standard has been set in 2022 by Hannes Louet-Feisser of Carlingford Lough, who completed the challenge – usually unaccompanied afloat – on a Windfoiler.

His longest day’s distance was 170kms, and he occasionally spent seven hours in the standing position “cruising” at speeds of up to 35kph, which indicates an exceptional level of core fitness and willpower for this 51-year-old veteran of the Irish board-sailing scene.
