Row across the Indian ocean

In December 2001 Theodore  completed his solo transatlantic row from La Gomera (Canary Islands) to Barbados (West Indies) and became the first oceanrower from the former Soviet Union

The project was well reported by newsmedia in Ukraine, Russia and other countries. Besides Radio, TV and Internet editions, the circulation of available documented Press editions totals more than 13 million


In 2003 Theodore undertook an attempt to row from New York to Europe, but due to unexpected encounter with an US Navy missile-carrier ‘US Doyle’, he had to stop his journey because his boat was severely damaged.


In July 2005 Theodore  is planning to start his next endeavor – to row solo across the Indian Ocean, from Carnarvon, WA to Madagascar.
Within the History of Crossing Oceans in rowboats, which runs to more than a century, only two solo rowers have ever undertaken this route – Swedish Anders Svedlund in 1971 (Australia  - Madagascar), and British Simon Chalk in 2003 (finished on the longitude of Rafael Island)
So all in all there were only two completed solo crossings and three failed attempts by ‘double’s.
