Molly Claire

Tom is an aspiring solo sailor. Having completed his MSc in Climate Studies, he is setting sail to circumnavigate the world he’s spent years studying.

To make this a reality, he bought Molly Claire (57) and intends to sail her home from Wicklowe, Ireland in July 2024. Molly Claire was hand built by Jim Schofield (Ireland) as a ‘pandemic project’, and took part in the 2021 Globe 5.80 Transat from Portugal to Antigua.

Tom will then have to quickly gain as much experience as possible with big ocean crossings, learning how to cook using the jetboil!
