Péter Perényi

He was initially asked by Nándor Fa to do the electric system of the Spirit of Hungary, then step by step became a potential co-skipper in Nandor’s eyes. Beside of being the electrician of the Spirit of Hungary, Péter participated in many areas of the preparations (carbon works, rigging, measurement processes, etc), furthermore completed several test and delivery sailing trips with Nandor since the launch of the Spirit of Hungary. Péter used to race in dinghy boat classes internationally (Optimist, class 420, class 470).
