67岁老人划皮划艇成功穿越大西洋

2014-04-25    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

4月23日报道,波兰67岁的老翁亚历山大·多巴(Aleksander Doba)于当地时间4月19日将皮划艇驶入美国佛罗里达州新士麦那海滩(New Smyrna Beach),这标志着其横跨大西洋长达6000英里的皮划艇探险在历时六个月后成功结束。

据报道,多巴自2013年10月5日从葡萄牙首都里斯本出发,原计划行程超过6500英里,但由于海上天气恶劣,船舵损坏,因此不得不在百慕大群岛靠岸修整船只。整个行程中,他在海上碰到很多困难,曾因通讯设备故障与外界失去联系长达47天。期间,卫星导航系统也出现过问题,难以确定行进路线,但他还是一如既往地坚持划行。

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- A 67-year-old Polish adventurer paddled his kayak into New Smyrna Beach on Saturday to mark the end of a 6,000-mile, trans-Atlantic journey.

They Daytona Beach News-Journal reported that Aleksander "Olek" Doba kissed the ground after he landed. He was greeted by hundreds of cheering supporters. A flotilla of fellow kayakers joined him as he paddled into the marina.

He told the crowd that completing the trans-Atlantic voyage was his dream.



"The feeling I had when I (arrived) here in New Smyrna Beach was fantastic, so many people, so friendly," he said.

Doba left Lisbon, Portugal on Oct. 5, but was forced to stop in Bermuda for repairs to his 21-foot kayak from Feb. 13 to March 23.

He said the most-difficult part of his trip was navigating through the choppy waters of the Gulf Stream just days before he reached the Florida coast.

Among those who greeted Doba on Saturday was Marianne McCormick of Port Orange. McCormick said she has followed Doba's adventure since November.

"I wouldn't miss this for the world. My husband wanted to play golf. I said, 'I'm coming here,' " said McCormick, who took pictures of the celebration with her iPad.

Mary "Snookie" DeMarce, of Edgewater, brought a sign that read "Olek, you're my hero."

"Yes, he's an inspiration because I'm 65," she said.

New Smyrna Beach Mayor Adam Barringer shook Doba's hand, calling him "Aleksander the Great." Barringer read a proclamation in Doba's honor and presented him with a bottle of champagne on behalf of the city.
