David Kenefick, a 22 year old Corkman burst into the Figaro sailing scene. Mentored by Marcus Hutchinson, he was the youngest in a schedule which saw him complete almost 7,000 offshore miles, nearly all of them single-handed. After a solid performance on the Generali Solo 2013 he was crowned Top Rookie of 2013.
