Russian Sets Off To Set Sailing Record
Today Fedor Konyukhov left Australia to begin his expedition to sail around Antarctica one his own. According to this article only one other person has done such a feat before. It was Jon Sanders who circumnavigated Antarctica back in 1981/1982. It took him much more time than the 60 to 65 days it is expected to take Fedor Konyukhov to complete his solo sailing around Antarctica. He is sailing to set the record on the Antarctic Cup Racetrack.
