Five Hombres from Russia on 25 ft inflatable catamaran

Five Russians crossed from the Saudi Arabia to Thailand traveling with the oldest known trade wind. They designed a catamaran with 25 feet inflatables. Did you know catamaran is a word from Tamil language of the south India. Some day, I like to do this but hug the coast more. But too much politics I am afraid. See the video of raising the mast.

Here is a translated page from Russian. So read with caution but it is an amazing feat. If you are interested in learning more about catamaran designs, visit this link.
