Singlehanded circumnavigation the wrong way

You may be interested in this guy who's singlehandedly circumnavigating the wrong way, from East to West, non stop....he is doing it without any sponsors, and he is not trying to beat any records...just fulfiling his lifelong dream...

Bet he makes it farther and longer than those two yahoos at 1000days. He's got the right dog, if you have to bring a dog. Very smart, easily trainable, and very loyal. Mine only needs about an hour of continual running on the beach everyday.

Now here's someone with the 'right stuff'. Good on him. No ********, just get out there and do it. I fear his balls are three sizes larger than mine.

It's been done before

My dear friend Harry Heckle has not only single circumnavigated twice, once each way, but is also the oldest person to do so. He did it just because he wanted to.
Thhe Slocum Society is going to award Harry next month for these feats. I plan to be there.

Harry is one kewl dude
