Thanks for all the support!!

13 Jan

First things first, all the comments are amazing! They are all being sent to Aodhán as text messages to his sat phone and as emails to their communal email address. Aodhán gets a chance to check his email once every three days and his texts around once a day – all depending on how he feels, how the ocean behaves and how it generally goes. Everytime his parents, sister and I get a chance to chat to him he always says how good it is to get all this support. Thank you all!

Good news, when you check Atlantic Odyssey’s live updates at the moment it is clear that the speed is increasing. Which potentially means that the elusive trade winds have started to kick in. YAY! Fingers crossed this is the right analysis.

Today is the twelfth day and for the crew the days seem to merge into one another. It is so monotones that Ian thinks he’s seeing bats fly, plays cheese alphabet games with Mark and the crew gets insanely excited about air planes flying over. Please listen to Ian’s & Mark’s pod cast to hear more:×200.swf?callInView=97132&channelInView=&phlogId=41329&phonecastId=121751.

Also check out the comments which friends, family, MPs and Alumni officers are posting below each post and click HERE for a wee article on Aodhán on the alumni website of NUI Maynooth where he studied.

    If you guys get bored with all the electronic communications we have nowadays, I wonder what Columbus did to stay sane;)
    Safe sailing! Xoxo
