VLADIVOSTOK, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. World-famous Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov, who continues his solo voyage across the Pacific, had undertaken a risky operation to clean his rowboat’s hull from algae.
He dived into the ocean and cut “green beard” from his Turgoyak with brushes and scrapers.
“It is an unusual scene, a boat without a rower and I as a cosmonaut am drifting five meters away from it,” Fyodor said.
On December 22, 2013 Konyukhov sailed off in Chile’s Concon in hope to cross the Pacific in 200 days from Latin America to Australia. His Turgoyak has already covered 3,958 miles (7,420 kilometers) and needs to overcome another 4,178 miles (7,420 kilometers) to reach the final destination, Australia’s Brisbane.
