Donald Lawson Racing Sails On
Throughout the years Donald Lawson Racing Incorporated (DLR) has accomplished many feats, however, the team’s main aspirations in order to propel their vision forward has yet to be accomplished. While strategically and vigorously building their team, DLR remains fixed in their pursuit to acquire an Eco 60 class boat, secure sponsorships and investors, compete in races globally and bring sailing as a sport to the mainstream.
DLR has established a team of individuals who handles sports marketing, logistics, media, branding and more. Since DLR stands on such a strong foundation they are able to gain the attention and interest of a myriad of high profile media outlets in the US. Because they are in the midst of pre- production with these media arenas they are unable to disclose media groups at this time, however, announcements are forthcoming. With these media interviews in place, there DLR will announce their intentions to enter other races.
At present, “Donald Lawson Racing is dedicated to entering the Velux 5 Oceans Race. We believe this race is an important step to achieving historic goals we have laid out. We are beginning the process to get going early and make sure we are at the starting line with a great vessel and prepared campaign,” said Donald Lawson.
In addition the DLR team consistently trains in the classroom, on the waters and has limitless certifications to support their efforts. Within the last few months Captain Donald Lawson sailed over 2,000 nautical miles in addition to his 800 nautical miles solo training trip from Bermuda to Long Island in a Mini 6.5.
Donald completed a scrupulous solo training from Bermuda to Long Island, New York. From what was supposed to be a five day training trip, turned out to be nine days training. Out of the nine days, seven of those days were spent absent of power. Because the boat was minus functional navigating and communication systems, Donald had no other choice but to follow the stars with only eight hours of sleep throughout the entire trip. While navigating the world’s busiest shipping lanes in high seas and winds these misfortunes did not stop him from sailing home in the open ocean.
As the team continues in their thrust to reach named goals they “plan to compete in a number of prominent events leading up to the 2014-2015 Velux 5 Oceans Race,” according to Donald Lawson.
