    I watched the documentary in Danish TV saturday 27th April 2013, and I was and I am still so moved, quiet and sad about this tragedy. But I am also aware that man on eart always have been doing things like that - further, longer, faster. In this special case me and my family will send all our thoughs and prayers to the loved memory of Andrew and his dear Family and relatives. As a sailor on a small hobby basis here in Denmark I know, how powerful the Sea and the waves are, so wiht that in mind I send you all my deepest respect for this spectacular but also tragic attempt.

    Just watched the documentary "on National Geographic Channel at June 29th 2012 @ 2am in the USA. never heard of this life story. it was great to see his strength and how sad the 1st launch went with him crying hard as his son kept saying bye dad. You could feel the pull to do this and the pull he had to come back to his family.

    I hope his son and wife are doing well...shocking how old his son must be now (mabe 9 or 10???)

    Wondering what month Andrew McAuley was born in? April or...

    rip Andrew

    I watched the documentary about Andrew last night. I can honestly say that it really moved me so much that I had to google his name this morning to see if I could find out more about him. It was so tragic for him to make it so far yet to lose his life in those final kilometres. However, he achieved what no-one else had, I just wish he was still here to realise that achievement.

    ,
    does the father of a three-year-old have the right to take such a risk as Andrew did?

    Im sure answer is NO

    Rest in peace.
