    First Person To Paddleboard Across The Atlantic

    First Person To Paddleboard Across The Atlantic
    Gear  /  Other
    42-year old Chris Bertish has become the first person to cross the Atlantic on a paddleboard, paddling 4,500 nautical miles from Morocco to Antigua in just 94 days.
    "This was no ordinary paddleboard. Bertish, a big-wave surfer and sailing enthusiast, worked with naval architect Phil Morrison to create a custom-built 20-foot vessel with a tiny cabin and an even tinier sleeping berth. That's where he stashed GPS equipment, a satellite weather system, radios, a satellite phone, and an autopilot system. On top of the craft they installed solar panels to keep all those gadgets charged, and Bertish also kept an emergency kit--complete with a life raft and flares--nearby just in case. He also had shark repellant handy, because, well, sharks are scary. The whole getup cost over $120,000 to build."
    In his last "captain's log" posted on Facebook and written roughly an hour before he completed his nautical expedition, Bertish said: “A day I have been working toward for as long as I can remember … I’ve put everything on the line for this project for the last five years … everything!”
