Siberian travellers who decided to circumnavigate the globe by a catamaran, tied up at the banks of the Thai island of Phuket. It was the final point of the traveller’s voyage.
The final point is located almost in the same spot where a bit above two years ago the first in the history of sailing round-the-world cruise by an inflatable sailboat started. Along the way travelers had rough time. Their GPS navigation system was broken and they had several meetings with sharks. During a heavy storm one of the Siberians fell overboard, but after he swam under the water he managed to grab the hanging rope and escape.
Round-the-world cruise of brave Siberians began in November 2010. In April 2012 the third round, which lasted 58 days finished. The four travelers Evgeny Kovalevsky, Evgeny Tashkin, Yuri Masloboev and Anatoly Kulik, moving from Port Elizabeth (South Africa) to Capetown, passed round Africa and crossed the Atlantics. It took 31 days. In 2012, a team of Siberians sailed between Brazil and Thailand. And their final round started in April 2012 on a new lightweight catamaran in size of 12 x 5 metres.
