Antonio de la Rosa
Restless from birth, at the age of 13 he is already a true expert in canoeing, swimming and rugby. At 23, he stands as Spanish Quadathlon Champion; which leads him to be, a few years later, a world reference in adventure raids, where he stands as Captain of the emblematic Red Bull raid team for 8 years, in which he achieves dozens of victories around the world.
We certainly could not have found a leader for this expedition with more experience in this type of activities.

I made double crossing of the Pacific arriving at the Marquesas and Bora Bora, ending the crossing in Valdivia, Chile. What will be the next destination? Where the wind takes me…
