Round Ireland Kayak Documentary Up For 'Outsider' Award

28th January 2016

#Kayaking - The film of kayaking duo Jon Hynes and Sean Cahill's 38-day round-Ireland adventure last summer has been nominated for an Outsider Magazine award.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the 45-minute documentary Sea Kayak Around Ireland tells the story of Hynes and Cahill's incredible circumnavigation of Ireland's 1,500km of coastline in all its rugged beauty.

First screened as a fundraiser in Cork last November, the film is now available to watch on YouTube.

And as Hynes told Anton Savage on Today FM yesterday, it has even been nominated for Adventure Movie of the Year in Outsider's 2015 awards – with voting still open to the public via social media.

Hynes and Cahill also made the long list for the 2015 Outsider People of the Year prize alongside fellow intrepid kayakers Susan Honan and Sonja Ewen.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
