Community Windpower would like to say a huge well done and send many congratulations to Elaine Hopley on the incredible achievement of completing the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, having raced solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Elaine set a new race record for the fastest solo female, crossing the finish line after 59 days, 19 hours and 14 minutes. She left the Canary Islands in December and arrived in Antigua on Sunday morning; an amazing feat!

CWL are proud to have supported the journey, by sponsoring Elaine £4,877 for the solar power pack for her boat.

Elaine has been raising money for Alzheimer Scotland and there is still time to donate to such a worthwhile cause: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Elaine-Hopley1

We hope you are now enjoying a well-earned rest Elaine!
