Irish solo sailor forced out of round the world yacht race back to finish what he started


Just over a year ago Enda O'Coineen was forced to abandon the Vendee Globe around the world yacht race. The Irish solo sailor limped into Dunedin with no mast, but now he's back to finish what he started.

The 62-year-old has a new boat and admits his previous experience wasn't a pleasant one.

“I got a legal friend to write a legal document that I promised to sign that if I ever wanted to do this again that he could produce it and stop me,” he joked.

This time around he says nothing's going to stop him getting to France.
