Archive for March, 2010
The past few weeks have been frantic, after a great few days of catching up chilling out and sleeping in Barbados we flew home to a fantastic welcome in Dublin airport. It was quite surreal to have so many family and friends awaiting my arrival in the terminal. It was fantastic to see everybody and I really appreciate the effort they all went to to travel all the way to Dublin.
It seems like a long time since I pulled my last strokes propelling Sara G every closer to our final destination of Port St. Charles. Our journey although amazing was certainly longer than we all predicted and the final sting in the tail came in the last few miles and almost resulted in us spending one more night tucked up […]
March 11th – Mike and the crew of the Sara G have landed safe and happy in Barbados after 57 days and 20 hours at sea. He will no doubt update the site once he has a sleep! MARCH 10th 2010 – Webcams live from Barbados We are hoping they will land sometime between 8pm and 10pm Local Time […]
Mike Talks about the roller coaster 48 hours they have had on the Sara G. He sounds very positive and upbeat about the fact that they will be with family and friends before the week is out. If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to Donate!
What a Huge Day!
The Sara G Broke 5000kms distance travelled. They have (as of yesterday) only 275 nautical miles, so 500km to go now!! The first arrivals of the welcome party will touch down in Barbados tomorrow (the easy way, by plane!) with the rest not far behind within the following few days.
Tick Tock… not far to go now!
Mike talks in depth about his weight issues.
He discusses the percentage of body fat he has and the fact that his heart rate is super human. Some of us here believe that possibly Mike and the crew have rowed through some sort of force field and that they no longer have human blood in their veins. We will have to wait a few days to see! (Only joking of course)
Mike Jones talks about activities on the Sara G.

Mikes latest Podcast from the Sara G. On a side note, things appear to be going well for the crew of the Sara G with their pace picking up slightly and weather conditions looking favourable for the last leg of the journey. Fingers crossed the rest of the trip goes well as they edge ever closer to achieving their goal […]
