Hungarian rows canoe across Atlantic Ocean
INTERNATIONAL NEWS - It took 76 days and his canoe capsized at one point, but Gabor Rakonczay has become the first person to paddle across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to the Caribbean in a canoe.
Rakonczay, who began his adventure in Lagos, Portugal, on Dec. 21, and stopped for several days in the Canary Islands for rest and supplies, reached the island of Antigua on Sunday, he tells The Associated Press in a phone interview from the Caribbean nation.
When his canoe capsized at sea, the Hungarian adventurer said he managed to save it but his communications equipment was damaged and he had not been in contact with his family since Feb. 6.
Rakonczay called reaching his destination a "great relief."
The Ocean Rowing Society International has recognized Rakonczay as the first person to achieve the feat.
