EPS sponsors Peter Lawless’ attempt to circumnavigate the globe

EPS sponsors Peter Lawless’ attempt to circumnavigate the globe.

Anchors away! We are delighted to be sponsoring Peter Lawless as he attempts to sail solo, non-stop, unassisted around the world from Kilrush, Co. Clare & back to Ireland via the 5 great Capes, using just a sextant and paper charts as his primary navigation tools.

Peter is hoping to be the first Irish person to successfully complete this endeavour when he sails his Waxwing cruising yacht out of Kilrush in August.

Our Water Treatment Manager Shane Corcoran and Managing Director Patrick Buckley presented Peter with a Spectra Watermaker Ventura 150R, which essentially turns sea water into drinking water.


Installing equipment for solo nonstop circumnavigation

We also gave him some EPS goodies like our nice snug fleece jacket, beanie hats and stainless steel water bottles – which he’s wearing & using already as you’ll see in this video

We’ll be following Peter’s journey over the coming months both as he prepares for the sailing and during his epic voyage.
