2007 Circumnavigation of Newfoundland.


The Israeli team of Hadas Feldman(This is the Sea fame...among other things) and Tomer Sabag will start their Circumnavigation of Newfoundland in May of 2007. They will depart from the capital city of St. John's. They plan to travel 2700-kms in 80 days. That's headland to headland. As the tenth largest island in the world, the actual shore line area is over 9600-kms. It's quite a challenge they've set...as one never really knows what the weather pattern will be from summer to summer. One thing is for sure, while sea kayaking this place...they'll experience their full share of whales, seabirds, seals, surf, fog and gorgeous coastline...maybe some icebergs too. I wish them all the luck in the world. I suspect they will have the time of their lives.

Once again another headland-to-headland expedition is about to launch and one can only wish them a safe paddle. I wonder, however, if there is anyone interested in a more detailed multi-year paddle around the Rock, visiting the less often seen parts of the island, similar to the Circle the Avalon challenge? It would certainly interest me!
