Here is the 3,70 m (12') micro-cruiser, SAID from Russia. Evgny Gvoznev left from the Caspian Sea, crossed the Mediterranean and the Atlantic to reach Argentina. After passing the Magellan Straits safely to reach Chile, he next sailed across the Pacific. Not long ago he arrived at Port Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia. Unfortunately, his Russian passport had expired while he was still at sea, and he was stuck in Port Darwin until a new passport could be sent to him. The latest news we've heard as of 9-10-02 is that he has now left Australia and he is on his way to South Africa. BRAVO!
