Jeff & Harry Blitz Ireland
Jeff Allen & Harry Whelan landed back at Ardmore last night, after circumnavigating Ireland in 25 days. That knocked an incredible 8 days off the previous record, and if you've followed their progress via their blog you'd know that they did it TOUGH with the wind & seas.
By all accounts they're enjoying a few well earned pints of Black Gold & resting easy, after punching out some massive mileage over the past 48 hours.
Their Taran's performed as expected, fast, superb in rough water & unaffected by the loads the guys were carrying. Our view that this style of boat is the expedition kayak of the future is gathering more & more hard evidence as each day passes.
Well done guys, you're a tough duo, that's for sure...
