To learn more about our project and the Educational Passages Miniboat Program, visit www.educationalpassages.org/ravenkaster After 102 days at sea, the Raven KASTER was recovered on a beach in Ireland! Sean Molloy, Manager of Achill Tourism contacted the School of Ocean Technology at the Fisheries and Marine Institute by email, noting that the boat had been found by a local fisherman Darren Kilbane on Dookinella beach on the south side of Achill Island on the West coast of Ireland. Darren is a fisherman and was very surprised to see the boat washed up on the road following a big storm that we have had here in recent days. Sean kindly noted, “On behalf of Darren, myself and the people of Achill Island, I would like to send you greetings and congratulate you on participating in this exciting project.” On December 6, 2022, students from Frank Roberts Junior High in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada met online with students from Coláiste Pobail Acla in Achill Island, Ireland. The purpose of the meeting was to officially start their collaboration on an ocean science project involving the relaunch of Raven KASTER miniboat.
