Cape Town - Chris Bertish,
internationally acclaimed speaker, Big Wave surfer and SUP Guinness world record holder, was greeted by a massive crowd at Cape Town International
Airport upon his return to the country on Monday.
Bertish, earlier in the month, became the first person to
complete a solo, unsupported Transatlantic SUP Crossing.
Among the attendees
included Bertish's family, media, a number of fans and project supporters as well
as professor Tim Noakes.
Bertish set off on the
greatest ocean adventure ever attempted from the coast of Morocco on December
6, 2016 and traversed 4 050nm/7 500km, paddling 1 944 000 strokes across the
Atlantic Ocean for 93 days, to reach the finish in English Harbour, Antigua on March 9, 2017.
Over R5 million has already been
raised via the SUP Crossing.
Bertish together with his team will continue to
raise funds for several charitable organisations including The Lunchbox Fund,
Operation Smile and Signature of Hope.
Bertish personally committed to funding
one operation for a child in Africa through Operation Smile for every world record he achieved on this epic Transatlantic journey.
