    Wishful Thinking

    SHE
    36
    Born on island of Anglesey ,been around the coast majority of my life . Sailing 30 plus years . Sail single handed vast majority of the time , having said that a good vane gear , aries / windpilot / monitor etc somehow gives feeling of not being alone ! Live in west Pembrokeshire so fortunate in that regard . Wishful thinking has done a lot of ocean miles , mostly with another skipper however . Completed 2012 Jester azores challenge in my Achilles 840 , Aries equipped in pretty tough conditions , boat coped well with up to 46 knots of wind well with Aries at the helm . Looking forward to passage again .

    I have sailed all my life in various boats, including a fair amount of short distance single-handed sailing. I cruised to Portugal and the Azores in 2018 and I am just seeing whether I can go a bit faster in 2019!

    I race with SORC (Solo Offshore Racing Club) and I competed in the 2015 AZAB finishing 4th overall and 2nd solo boat overall. Other solo races have included the SORC Celtic Challenge, SORC Round the Rock (Fastnet Rock - solo) and Wolf Rock Race (winner 2017). Double-handed races have included the 2010 Round Britain & Ireland (2nd overall), 2011 North Sea 1000 (1st overall), Round Ireland, various Fastnet's, RORC and JOG races. I just love short-handed racing and the AZAB is a unique challenge with a fantastic social element.

    Terry AshworthDouble-handed
    Terry & Matt – a father & son team! I have been boating for over 40 years, enjoying power boating in the 70’s teaching Scouts water skills in the 80’s, and cruising with my family since the 90’s. Matt grew up in and around boats – we had Westerly Konsort (the “floating caravan”) and later a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 32 which we cruised around the C.I., Normandy and Brittany coasts. I have occasionally raced my cruising boats – primarily in the local passage races including the annual Guernsey – Jersey race. However, I have always wished to do a long distance trip. Matt has crewed round the cans on a J97 for a few years and he suggested we combine our aspirations and compete in the AZAB. We decided the Maxi 1050 is the ideal boat for the job.

    I've wanted to take part in the AZAB ever since buying my own boat some 10 years ago. I've crewed in the Rolex Fastnet, Middle Seas and other offshore races but mostly I cruise Samaritan shorthanded out of Dartmouth, Devon. Samaritan is no racer and I've done a lot of work so she meets the OSR requirements for the race. I recently took part in and completed the 2018 SoloFASTNET and am looking forward to next year's race.

    I first learned to sail on the heavy dinghies that were on the Serpentine in Hyde Park in 1972 and have sailed ever since. I raced a Ruffian 23 for over a dozen years and have cruised the Irish Coast, the North Channel, Clyde and Hebrides for many years with my family in the summer and Belfast Lough on my own in the winter. I am proud to be a member of both the Royal Highland Yacht Club and the Irish Cruising Club. I look forward to racing to the Azores in a boat that was designed in the mid 1970s and built in the mid 1990s.
