world’s oldest ocean rower
The world’s oldest ocean rower Ukrainian Pavel Rezvoy (65) in his 7 meter long ocean rowboat “Marion Lviv” is approaching the target of his epic voyage Santiago de Cuba. He was expected to land Saturday morning, but encountered storm fronts, currents and head winds, that slowed his progress. On the morning of June 5th he was still 60 miles south from the coast.
He has rowed 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean single handed and unassisted, using oars as the only means of propulsion, in 61 days. But after successful arrival to Barbados he didn’t want to stop the adventure and undertook the path nobody had rowed before rowing northwest, across nike mercurial superfly the Caribbean Sea to reach “the dream of his youth” Cuba. In 3 weeks after departure from Barbados Pavel Rezvoy has covered 1164 m nike mercurial superfly iles (1874 km) (1015 n/miles).
