Record-Breaking Sea Kayak Journey Around Ireland

Posted on June 4th, 2012 by

A few months back we were contacted with news of an amazing man in Ireland who was going to attempt to break a world record- so we jumped at the chance to do our part in supporting him on his amazing journey.

Today, June 4th, Adventurer Mike Jones of Cobh, Co Cork, Ireland is setting off in is 18-foot long sea kayak in an attempt to paddle around the entire country of Ireland in a mere 35 days, hoping to not only break the current world record in the process but also raise €10,000, (which equals about $12,000,) Children’s Sunshine home and Laura Lynn house- both organizations that care for children with life limiting conditions.

We were lucky enough to be able to send Mike one of our favorite toys for his adventure- an HzO WaterBlocked iPod Nano to keep him company while he paddled. He was very excited to test it out with a few barrel rolls in his kayak, and put it through the test of whatever the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea could dish out.

Mike will have a tracking beacon on his kayak, so hopefully we will be receiving updates on his progress as his journey progresses. We wish him luck, and will keep you posted on his progress!
