A few weeks back on my blog (20th June 2008)I wrote about Riaan Manser and his bid to become the first person to circumnavigate Madagascar in a Sea kayak.


Well today (July 8 2009)at 15h20 local time he did it…Well Done Riaan!


And for me the greatest thing was that one of my paddles propelled him all the way, yes an Orka paddle has been all the way around Madagascar.


His epic journey started in August 2008 and finished 11 months later,5000km later at Tamatave beach where it all began.


Here are a few of the photos of him finishing I am sure once he is back in South Africa there will be many more.


I will keep you updated.Else check him out for yourself at www.africa365.co.za
