Sergio Davì announces his new Transoceanic RIB adventure

by Segio Davi 3 Oct 2020 23:20 PDT

On October 2nd, in the context of the start of the sixtieth edition of Genoa Boat Show, Sergio Davì introduced, by exclusive press preview, his new fascinating and challenging RIB adventure, planned for the fall/winter 2021/2022.

"Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure". This is the name chosen by the brave captain and his crew. Final destination is California, with depart from Palermo, as usual.

The route, not very different from the previous 2017 Palermo-Brazil, involves again Atlantic Ocean crossing but with scheduled stopovers also in Venezuela and Colombia, and then sailing along Panama Canal to move towards Pacific Ocean. But the great unusual aspect of this route is the passage by Galapagos Archipelago before to continue towards Mexico and California.

The Californian port chosen as final destination is Los Angeles: it is no coincidence that it is almost at the same latitude as Palermo (Los Angeles 34 degrees5'22"34 N, Palermo 38 degrees6'43"56 N).

Over 10,000 nautical miles alone, aboard a Nuova Jolly Marine rigid inflatable boat 10 m long around, the model of which has not yet been unveiled, powered by a pair of Suzuki outboards (yet to be determined whether with 200 or 300 horsepower each) and Simrad electronics instruments. All three brands, strongly devoted to the policies for the protection of the marine environment, have once again chosen to support Sergio Davì in this special RIB adventure that has all the potential for writing a new page in the history of world boating, by providing him the best technologies with zero environmental impact.

The captain and his crew estimate about 100 travel days of which 25 around for sailing. The longest route from a port to another one is the one between Cape Verde and Barbados that exceeds 2.000 nautical miles (a record in a record!).

Also this time it will be possible to follow real time the captain by special geolocation devices that will be shared near the departure. Instead, since now it is possible stay tuned in order to follow all updates concerning preparation and organization works by the official website www.ciuriciurimare.com and the social pages and profiles: on Facebook by Sergio Davì Adventures (www.facebook.com/SergioDaviAdventures), on Instagram by sergiodavi_adventures, on YouTube by Sergio Davì Adventures.
