NEW SONG AND VIDEO
A new song and video from Lennie for South African sailor Kirsten Neuschäfer’s amazing journey as the only female entrant in the exciting and dangerous solo Golden Globe Race around the world using only traditional pre 1967 navigation. At time of writing, she is fighting to maintain her position in first place, despite having earlier deviated from her course to save a fellow competitor whose boat suddenly sank!
An incredible story about an amazing sailor aboard her boat bearing the name Minnehaha, which means The Laughing Waters. Kirsten unexpectedly spent a year on PEI, Canada, getting her boat ready during covid with help and support from some Islanders she met who can be seen singing on the chorus at the end of this song. Lennie and partner Patricia Richard became friends with Kirsten while she was there. Please check out her website below!
