15:05   12 December, 2012

Well-known Russian survivalist, traveler and yacht captain Fyodor Konyukhov plans to cross the Pacific Ocean with an ordinary rowboat next year.  

Even though Konyukhov is 61 years old, he plans to finish this challenge in 200 days. If he can accomplish this feat, he will break a world record.     

A special rowboat is being made in England for Konyukhov, and it will have a drinking water and food supply for 200 days, ITAR-TASS News Agency reports.   

To note, Fyodor Konyukhov has set world records, specifically crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a single rowboat in 2002. He had started his journey from the Canary Islands on October 16 and reached Barbados—a distance of 3,000 nautical miles—in 46 days and 4 hours.
