From Chigaco to Ireland

Here is a really cool blog that was sent to us by Lorcan. Through it, one can follow the adventures of these fellows as they sail across the Atlantic to Ireland. There is a live map that is updated reguarly showing their (more or less) current location, photos of their adventures as well as video clips.

These sailors are familiar that areas that are dear to my heart, the St Lawrence Seaway, The Gaspe and even the city of Montreal. All places of which I have fond memories.

Following this blog could make an interesting geography unit for the summer.

I will try as soon as possible to add this as a permanent link on my side bar. (Please note I have not checked every post by these men on thier blog so if you should come across anything objectionable as you read their posts, strong language for example, please let me know.)

Hats off to Lor for sharing it.
