Peggy West

St Helena is a wonderful ocean stop and Peggy West (of Galway) is probably best proof of that. 

She is skippered by Belfast man Roy who sailed from Ireland in 2003 and has been here off Jamestown for 3 years.

He plans to leave on his 50 year old Nicholson 35 for Grenada next week; a voyage that at Peggy's 100NM a day should take about 5 weeks. 

Roy seems ready, as does Peggy (the mainsail cover came off this morning) so I would like just to wish safe passage on behalf of Ruth II for their next leg of the voyage home to Ireland.
