In the following very interesting interview Ben Wagner speaks with Peter about his life long interest in sailing and how he advanced his career to where he is today. It is good to hear there are now two definite members of the first Irish Commodores Cup team confirmed namely Marc Glimcher’s Catapult, a Ker 40 and Anthony O’Leary’s Ker 39 Antix. This is good to hear as rumour has been rife concerning the make up of the Irish team. Now, all we need is a third boat that will have the necessary rating and hope this will come quickly. It is also hoped to have a second team as well.
It must be remembered that, as we were recently reminded by Denis Kiely at the recent SCORA AGM, at one Commodores Cup Ireland fielded three teams and going into the final day of racing they were lying First, Second and Third, and finally Ireland achieved the ultimate dream by winning the Commodores Cup in 2010.
