It will also be great to catch up with friends that I haven't seen for a while." For the Champagne Joseph Perrier July Regatta, a highly competitive fleet is expected to be racing in IRC One, including a number of level rating J/111s.Chris Jones & Louise Makin's Journey Maker II and Tony Mack's Mc Fly, both featured in this year's J/111 World Championship in Newport, USA. , winner of Black Group for Cowes Week 2014, will also be competing.
It will be Libby's first competitive racing since completing every leg of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race.
As navigator with Team SCA, Libby has raced over 40,000 miles.
The Greenhalgh family have been club members for 15 years and besides Libby's achievement, brother Robert has just completed his fourth Volvo Ocean Race and Peter, like his brother, is a multiple sailing world champion.
"I have not been home since December and the club has changed quite a bit since then." commented Libby.
"The new slipway is perfect to launch my kayak and the facility is great for dinghy sailors, especially the junior members of the club.
Racing with Dad on J'ronimo will be a bit different to a Volvo Ocean 65, but I am really looking forward to the regatta.
I love sailing with Dad, he really knows these waters so well and racing a smaller boat on a tight course is what I know best.
