Water Sport Safety

I now carry a PLB Personal Locator Beacon and helmet every time I am out in the water.  Personal Locator Beacons work through search and rescue satellites to send a distress signal to the Coastguard. I survive to tell a story and I have responsibilities to strongly advice every water sport person to wear a means of contact and inform family or friends of going out and coming in times. Also if you are an outdoor adventurer enthusiast such as, travelling to remote places, skiing, rock climbing, your life is so worth investing in a PLB or other location devices. We owe this to our families, friends and rescue services.

Dear Friends and family and all Rescue Services, It is 4 years ago today on the 11th 11th at 11 o'clock at night that I reached land in Co. Clare from Ballybunion after a day of windsurfing turned into a rescue operation as the wind that I needed to power the sail dropped and I had to detach the sail and find a way amongst waves, rain to lie on my board seasick and praying for the darkness to go so I could see the way home.   You all are very aware of the story as many of you were there - 4 years later we are so so gratefully that I am alive but traumas are definitely remain, it is not an ordinary life experience to go through and it does leave you with a journey to try and process it all. Me and Mandi try to do something every year with gratitude  to mark the day - but the theme for this year is honesty - to share a little of our struggles since it happened - the enormity of a story like that can get overwhelming for both me and my wife as I m only an ordinary man and I feel for t

Paddle boarders rescued in Galway

Myself and my wife were thrown back in time tonight as we read of the miraculous rescue and survival of the two girls of the west coast of Ireland. We stand in total celebration and joy for these families tonight and for the amazing fact that their boards drifted towards a lobster marker pot in the middle of the night, I know that feeling and that darkness well as a fellow survivor. This is nothing short of a miracle! And I know this because I had my miracle too out there in the ocean...  So overjoyed for the girls that they thought about what to do and kept their boards together, and obviously didn't give up hope. And again the thought of the rescue out there looking and the community and fishermen... The best of humanity comes out to help in these horrific circumstances... I could see my wife's face as she watched the RTE News, she was totally reminded of that hard night standing in the dark looking out into the blackness, praying, hoping and in turmoil. She had no family wit
