VLADIVOSTOK, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. World-famous Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov, who continues his solo rowboat voyage across the Pacific, left Chile’s zone of responsibility.
The traveler’s headquarters received this notification from the Chilean Navy on Wednesday.
To date, he has sailed 1,380 miles of Concol deep to the ocean, according to the London-based Ocean Rowing Society International. The notification means that Konyukhov should hope only for his own strength and strength of his boat.
On Thursday, Konyukhov’s rowboat Turgoyak moved to the north of 18 degrees south latitude and reached Peru’s sector.
Over the past 24 hours, Fyodor has covered 67 miles. Since the first day of his solo voyage, he has covered 1,451 miles (2,694 kilometers).
During his short communication session, Konyukhov spoke of his nutrition rules. “Four times per day I switch on my gas stove. At the sunrise, I drink coffee, at noon I boil water for hot meals and in the evening, I have some hot meals. I have two types of sublimated food: British and Norwegian, I alternate them. At night I switch on a burner, drink coffee or hot chocolate,” he said.
“My food rules depend on the ocean, sometimes I am thrown at waves so heavily that it is dangerous to use boiling water not to burn myself. In this case I use dry lunch and cold bottled water,” Konyukhov said.
Konyukhov has to cover over 6,000 miles to reach Australia. Under favorable conditions, his voyage may take approximately 200 days.
If successful, Konyukhov would be the ninth person in the world to row the Pacific solo and the second person to row the South Pacific solo.
