  • Learning from the journey - One Wild Ride
    withstand the elements sway and pitch in the wind shine brightly on the good days stand strong on the darker ones glow with luminosity and yet sit humbly in their own presence It s an initiation ceremony of sorts difficult and challenging at the time life changing and redemptive when the road clears and it s time to head out into the world for real Believing in something is a very powerful thing You can watch it climb to new heights sense the excitement when it captures someone else s imagination and then almost by magic starts to grow within them new shoots insights and introspections that breath life into what you have already created yourself It can be hard to watch it wilt on occasion too but like a winter frost sometimes a blast of cold air is what we all need strengthening our resolve helping us build newer and stronger connections to the things we believe in This One Wild Ride journey has been all these things and so many more already and I m the better for it Share this Share Tweet Email Trackback from your site Leave a comment Submit Comment Notify me of follow up

  • The Route - One Wild Ride
    so a start point in Schull Co Cork ensures it is tackled early when fitness and team organization will be key From Schull the route takes in the breath taking Wild Atlantic Way from the Skelligs Valentia and the Blasket Islands the Cliffs of Moher the Aran Islands and on up Connemara s beautiful and remote coastline Turning toward Inishshark and Inisbofin on towards Achill Island past the Mullet Peninsula and round Erris Head into the expanse of Donegal Bay these landmarks present their own unique challenges before the northern rounding point by Malin Head is reached My own private Cape Horn to some degree Malin Head will be a wild and windy half way point of sorts Safely past it s then onward across the northern coast past the tidal gates near Rathlin Island and down beyond Strangford Lough into the Irish Sea The east coast will offer some shelter but less favourable winds and added tidal challenges No time for a celebratory stop in Dublin as it s on to Carnsore Point past the safe haven of Kilmore Quay Hook Head Ballycotton Cork Harbour Kinsale and Baltimore will be the final checkmarks on the map back toward Schull

  • The Distance - One Wild Ride
    at a rather daunting 3 171km For simplicity if you draw a line around the country the approximate distance would be 1500 kilometres This is the expected distance to be sailed How long will it take Being a solo passage in such a small dinghy means the actual length of time needed to complete the challenge is difficult to predict With consideration for average speed approx 6 knots 11 kilometres an hour weather conditions and fatigue the projected timeframe for completion is expected to be between 25 and 40 days about 250 to 350 hours sailing That s of course assuming the Irish weather plays its part and doesn t batter the boat and I all the way to the finish To make sure neither of us take too much of a daily pounding either the plan is to schedule regular passages between 40 80 kilometres a day depending on weather conditions and all necessary safety considerations Share this Share Tweet Email div uk panel data uk grid margin div uk panel data uk grid margin Don t forget to visit us on social media Design Development by Conor Macken Dominic Sherlock 2016 One Wild Ride All rights reserved Send

  • Safety Planning - One Wild Ride
    accidents before we set off on the challenge Mitigating any risks to prevent them taking place AND preparing the team for action if they do happen There are the obvious examples of course making sure everyone on the water has the right safety equipment and knows how to use it Fundamentally however crisis management will stress test all potential outcomes where s the nearest hospital doctor pharmacy based on each stage of the journey How long will it take to get there What emergency services are available Do such services know where I am and how can they be reached What happens if we have no phone coverage and on it goes Getting the basics right By building a support team that leverages expertise for each aspect of the journey including passage planning meteorology navigation nutrition and safety we ve maintained that focus on end to end planning At the heart of our plans are the sea and shore support teams that will safeguard Gary along each stretch of the coast First Aid and powerboat trained they ll ensure our safety plan is observed and where required actioned Support Boat crewed by two people at all times the support boat will follow Gary along the sailing route providing real time safety communications and support as applicable Although they ll rely on GPS and charts for navigation roadmaps and bespoke electronic mapping will also be utilized allowing them to easily identify landing spots and proximity to roads and villages Support Vehicles these will provide the necessary land based support to the whole team carrying trailers equipment spares food clothing and related kit While sailing is underway the shore support team will also provide real time updates on weather or sea conditions and act as emergency response vehicles and coordination if required

  • The Boat - One Wild Ride
    for good reason Robust the boat s hull is made out of GRP Glass Reinforced Plastic That s no reason to crash it into anything but comfort enough knowing it will take a knock or two Simple to rig the two part free standing mast and sleeved sail make the boat easy to set up That makes it easy to repair if and when we break stuff on this trip Multiple rig options three different sail sizes makes it versatile Especially important when it s windy a smaller sail size means you catch less wind and exert less effort to keep the boat upright Comparatively fast just 13 ft 10 5 inches long the boat is little more than twice the size of an average household bath However it s a lot more streamlined and light too weighing just 56 7 kg 130 lb That all adds up to One W ild Ride a physically demanding workout every time you sail Share this Share Tweet Email div uk panel data uk grid margin div uk panel data uk grid margin Don t forget to visit us on social media Design Development by Conor Macken Dominic Sherlock 2016 One Wild Ride
