"This crossing is on the very edge of what I believe is possible - but I am looking forward to a cold Guinness on arrival," he said to a Daily Mail reporter.
The 35 year old English engineer stepped off Sunday and was making good progress towards his goal 66 miles across the Irish Sea, but nine hours and maybe a dozen miles later his craft, the Tredalo, was either hit by some winds or developed rudder problems, but either way he had to be rescued by a support craft while the Tredalo sank.
But he's even more convinced that his trek across the Irish Sea is possible and may try it again.
Long way to go for a pint of Guinness, but well worth the effort!
