Atlantic,Pacific, now Indian Ocean on a Sailboard    

French adventurer Skipper Raphaela LeGouvello will attempt the Indian Ocean crossing on a sailboard, solo and non-assisted, departing from Exmouth on 5 April 2006. She is coming to Fremantle Sailing Club for her final preparation as well as fulfilling PR commitments from 14-25 March.

The Sailboard arrived at the Fremantle Sailing Club on Tuesday 7 March and after being unpacked it will be launched on Wednesday, the sailboard will be located near the Soling/Fishing Crane for members and journalists viewing.

Information on Raphaëla le Gouvello.

Raphaëla le Gouvello discovered windsurfing with her family in 1976 and has been an adept ever since. The call of the open sea was immediate for her and the idea of crossing the Atlantic became more and more important. In 2000 she took 58 days to complete the challenge which she had taken so much time to think about and prepare for.

Raphaëla is a woman with a passion; three extreme adventures, the Atlantic in 2000, the Mediterranean in 2002 and the Pacific in 2003; three previously unaccomplished, authentic exploits.
