THE OCEAN TO OCEAN RIB ADVENTURE IS OVER! SERGIO DAVÌ CONQUERS LOS ANGELES ABOARD HIS ARETUSA EXPLORER.
After more than 5 travel months, the Italian skipper Sergio Davì, expertise in oceanic sailing, conquers the City of Angels aboard his faithful and powerful Aretusa Explorer, a Nuova Jolly Marine Prince 38cc inflatable boat, powered by two high-performance Suzuki DF300B dual prop outboards with eco-friendly technologies and equipped with top-of-the-range Simrad marine electronics, including the sophisticated AP™ 48 autopilot, the HALO24 radar and the NSS evo3S multifunction display equipped with C-MAP cartography.
Sergio Davì’s Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure gloriously concluded yesterday May 23rd with his arrival at the port of San Pedro in Los Angeles at 1:00 pm local time (10:00 pm in Italy). Waiting for him were the President Yamamoto of Suzuki Marine USA together with the two vice presidents Blakely and Wahira, with the presence of the Consul General of Italy in Los Angeles, Silvia Chiave together with the Vice Consul Pietro Bellinghieri, as well as a big community of Italians and Italian-Americans, including some fishermen from Terrasini, a small fishing village a few kilometers far from Palermo, the city from which all Davì’s missions started.
The numbers of this exciting challenge, better known as “Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure”, are truly impressive: 9.201,80 nautical miles traveled along a route that has involved 3 continents (Europe, Africa, Americas) and 12 countries. The Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure started from Palermo (Italy) on last December 15th, made several stops in Spain (Balearic Islands and Canary Islands), Gibraltar, Cape Verde, French Guiana, Trinidad & Tobago, Curaçao, Colombia, Panama, Guatemala, Mexico and United States.
519 total sailing hours and 32 minutes, of which 152 non-stop during the record Atlantic crossing from Cape Verde to French Guiana, with fuel consumption average that has always been around 3.5 liters per mile.
Along the entire adventure, which also saw Davì crossing the Canal of Panama to reach the Pacific Ocean, there was no lack of unexpected events and difficulties: from the forced stop in the Canary Islands due to Covid to the marine conditions that were often particularly adverse, and again the hijacking of the Caribbean Sea to escape a boarding by pirates.
After two years of hard work, in the midst of unfavorable global situations, carried out in synergy with winning collaborations, the brave captain can finally put his name on another significant page of world boating.
