In 2015 Lenny’s suggested modifications along with the skills of a great team enabled Team Talisker to win first overall in Cruising Multihull division at AHIRW. In 2016 Lenny’s continual improvements allowed Talisker to compete, with some distinction, against boats much larger and designed for speed rather than cruising.
All being well, Lenny and Team Talisker will be throwing their hats into the ring again in 2017 AHIRW.
Lenny and Alan’s friendship has grown stronger since he was diagnosed with MND and that
friendship will continue to grow as they prepare for and execute ‘Lenny’s Lap’ to raise funds for research into finding a cure for MND.
Yvonne joined Team Talisker as foredeck crew in 2015 and has proven to be a great asset to the team. Her physical fitness, extensive experience in ultra endurance racing (running/biking), skills and knowledge underwater (scuba), together with her calm under crisis personality is vital when racing and passage making in adverse conditions. During the 2016 AHIRW, ‘Vonny’ showed another side to her character and took it upon herself to ensure all the more wayward partying crew members got to their bunks in time for a few winks before the next race. She will be a great asset to ‘Lenny’s Lap’.
