Lightwave conquers the World!
WELCOME HOME : Lightwave Yachts host Homecoming celebration at Southport Yacht Club
A blue water pedigree with sleek appeal, Lightwave cats are renowned for their awesome performance and long range cruising capabilities, and the latest accomplishment of a Lightwave 45, adds proven performance appeal, as a World conquering catamaran.
SECOND TIME, LIGHTWAVE catamaran owners, Peter and Penny Faulkner, of Gosford, New South Wales, Australia, have just completed a World circumnavigation with their Lightwave 45 Innforapenny II.
Providing testament, in completing a world circumnavigation, to its blue water performance and long range cruising capabilities, this Australian made production catamaran, has gained international attention in its World voyage, participating in two International Blue Water Rallies. This included the largest sailing event in the world, the Arc Atlantic Rally, in which the Lightwave 45 victoriously claimed Multihull Division winner!
Arriving home in Australia, mid October 2010, on the Gold Coast, where they started their World circumnavigation four and half years ago, Peter and Penny were treated to a grand homecoming event. Hosted by Lightwave Yachts, the celebratory event for the world cruisers was attended by fellow Lightwave owners and special friends of Peter and Penny, as part of the prestigious Twenty 10 Lightwave Owners Regatta.
In their Lightwave 45 Innforapenny II, Peter and Penny crossed three oceans and seven seas and travelled 35,000nm, visiting 44 countries, and a load of islands, experiencing the wonderful diversity of cultures around the World, and visiting spectacular cruising destinations.
As part of the world circumnavigation achievement celebrations, Lightwave Yachts are commending the entire Lightwave fleet for its collective tally of over 300,000nm of cruising. Prestigiously customised for each client, and designed for single handed sailing ability, Lightwave catamarans have been cruising since 1996, intensively along the rugged Australian coastline, and to destinations including Pacific Islands, Asia, America’s East Coast, and New Zealand.
With its latest World conquering achievement, Lightwave catamarans are proving real to their claim, as the Ultimate Cruising Catamarans.
