Congratulations Freya!

Yesterday Freya Hoffmeister finished the solo-circumnavigation of Australia by seakayak: an impressive, almost unbelievable achievement. Anyone who knows Freya, will agree that if there is one person in this world able to accomplish an expedition like this: it must be Freya. And Freya showed us she really is. Compliments to Freya!

While normally Dutch press hardly pays attention to kayaksport, the succesfull completion of Freya's expedition was covered by the Dutch National Press Agency ANP, and by a quality newspaper like NRC-Handelsblad.

The journalist of ANP has problems in making the difference between paddling and rowing (a common mistake) and added a video-clip of Justine Curgenven to the news-item. The video starts with the familiar face of another Dutch seakayaker...
