Russian man reaches Chile on attempt to kayak across the globe

Fedor Konyukhov finished the first leg of a journey of a lifetime when he arrived Saturday (May 11) at a port in the far south of Chilean Patagonia after crossing the frigid and storm-battered Southern Ocean from New Zealand in a specially-outfitted kayak.

The 67 year-old former Russian sailor departed in his kayak from Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand over 150 days ago on December 06, 2018.

Konyukhov is attempting to cross the entire Southern Ocean in three legs.

His son Oscar said the second leg of his journey will begin in a year or two when he will set off from Chile.
