It’s 10:30pmGMT. Do You Know Where Your Volvo Ocean Race Boat Is?

Volvo Ocean Race 2009 - Boston Harbor

It’s 10:30pm in Galway, Ireland. Dusk is starting to envelop the area. It won’t really get dark for a while.  I am on my way out the door to make my way from Glenlo Abbey Hotel in Bushypark, Co. Galway, to the harbor area to meet at the media center there. I will be boarding a boat at about midnight to go out into the harbor to be in place to greet the boats as they come into the harbor.  We expect the first boat, if the wind and weather don’t change, at about 1 AM GMT.  Ireland’s boat, The Green Dragon, is expected to cross the finish line into Galway sometime between 2am and 3am GMT. 

This is clearly going to be an all-nighter! Maurice Keller who owns Arlington Lodge in Waterford, Ireland is very active in the organization Good Food Ireland as is Mary Gleeson from Gleeson’s Townhouse and Restaurant in Roscommon.  Maurice has been in every port around the world to welcome the Green Dragon’s Irish crew with Irish salmon, fresh baked Irish soda bread, fresh Irish creamery butter and wonderful Irish beef and lamb prepared to perfection.  He and Mary Gleeson are among the Good Food Ireland members who will be set up in the port of Galway in the middle of the night to welcome the crew of the Green Dragon.

Everyone is out to celebrate and the pubs will be open until 3am.  It’s a city-wide party the likes of which you need to be here to experience.  And there is no question, when it comes to wholesome and delicious food and warm, caring, hospitable people with a special appreciation for extracting the joy from every moment, you’ll find it in Ireland and particularly in Galway!

Watch for updates tomorrow . . . if I ever get to sleep tonight! Otherwise, I’ll be a bit delayed bringing you up to date. Be sure to check the archives for today’s Traveling Feet broadcast featuring the CEO of the Green Dragon Team and Captain Brian Sheridan, the Galway Bay Harbourmaster (listen, they spell funny over here!).  And Sunday night’s Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams was recorded on Friday so we can be in the harbor tonight but it’s filled with great interviews that you are really going to enjoy!

I’m off to the media centre in Galway (let’s keep the spelling consistent!).
All aboard who’s going aboard!
