ÍOCsave rewards bravery of Irish sailor who embarks on epic world voyage

ÍOCsave are pleased in being a main sponsor to a very brave and ambitious Limerick man, Peter Lawless, who on the 21st August 2021 will embark on a very unique solo sailing, non-stop, unassisted around the world. ÍOCsave is an Irish owned payment processing company, focused on bringing constant cost savings to the SME sector and are delighted to support this local initiative. If Peter completes his mission, he will become the first Irishman to sail around the world solo, without stopping. Although a Limerick man, Peter is living in Annascaul, County Kerry, which is known for its huge spirit of exploration and the famous Tom Crean. This trip is a huge undertaking for any brave adventurer and the ultimate challenge of survival. Peter has been planning and preparing for the trip, for around two years and will use paper charts as his primary source of navigation. He will depart from Kilrush, Co. Clare next weekend in his yacht Waxwing, (a Rival 41 offshore cruising yacht) and expects to return in eight to ten months, all going well. His voyage will take him down the Atlantic before rounding the southern tip of Africa before sailing across the Indian Ocean. He will then sail across the South Pacific before facing the challenging and notoriously dangerous seas around the Cape Horn, before sailing back north through the Atlantic and back to Ireland. The ÍOCsave team are in complete admiration of how committed Peter is to fulfilling his lifelong ambition of sailing around the world. He has sailed consistently throughout his life and his father was a sailor who was always a great inspiration to him. His father Pat sailed into Kilrush in 1996, following his successful voyage. Good luck Peter from all the team at ÍOCSave!
