Royal Cork’s Des McWilliam is interviewed on Tom MacSweeney’ s This Island Nation

Marine Correspondent Tom MacSweeney has an excellent audio on Afloat.ie with Royal Cork’s own Des McWilliam in which he talks about his first time sailing across the Atlantic, which he has “wanted to do” throughout his long sailing career, but has never done until now. He talks about the ARC – the Atlantic Cruiser Rally – in which he will start sailing this Sunday, November 23, leaving Gran Canaria, bound for Saint Lucia – and about the disappointment that the huge successes of Irish international sailors, “the Ronaldos of the sailing world” as he describes them, are not recognised in Ireland because enough people “do not appreciate the sea and much more. Well worth a read and listen to.   Interview HERE
