Irish Solo Sailior Tom Dolan

This July the 2017 Mini Transat Race, solo sailor Tom Dolan was in the National Yacht Club, to coach some friends out in the bay on an evening of fresh winds.

In June, Dolan got on the podium in the Mini-Fastnet Race despite being fouled by a fishing net. That same month, he was in second in the 500 Mini-en-Mai Race. In May, he finished second in the 500 Mini-en-Mai Race but was leading for a lot of it. And in a much needed development that month, Dolan also signed Smurfit Kappa as a sponsor
