ThinkSpain , Wednesday, November 3, 2004

Argentinian adventurer Daniel Serenelli left San Sebastián de La Gomera at 9am yesterday morning in a bid to row single-handed across the Atlantic; a voyage of some 3,300 nautical miles. Serenelli aims to complete the journey in 80-100 days in his fibre-glass boat, the "Vamos Argentina," which is 7.5m long, 1.6m wide, 1.1m high, and weighs 330kg.

Serenelli, known in Argentina as "el Capi," said prior to departure that he was "very happy" now that "the bureacracy is finally over and now it´s just down to me, my boat and Mother Nature." The adventurer, who has a bottle of wine and two bottles of cider to celebrate Christmas,  added that he had decided to undertake the voyage "to add a bit of colour to my life and do something transcendental."
