A New Bulgarian World Record Is Now a Fact: for the World's Youngest Ocean RowerOctober, 2020
Today is a great day, as a new Bulgarian World Record was set - for the World Youngest Ocean Rower and are thrilled to announce that behind it are our friends Maxim Ivanov (17 y.o.) and his father Stefan Ivanov!
A few hours ago these brave sea warriors managed to complete the first ever ocean rowing expedition for Bulgaria and traveled 4444 nautical miles (8230 km) with the fiberglass boat NEVEREST, made by themselves in their garage.
NEVEREST also became the first ocean rowing boat to cross the Atlantic east to west during the hurricane season.
Maxim and Stefan’s expedition was dedicated to a special cause – stimulating the organ donation. The rowers supported the campaign of the Bulgarian Ministry of Health ‘YES! FOR LIFE!’, whose goal is to increase the public awareness about organ donation.
We at M3 Communications Group, Inc. are extremely proud to be the PR and communications partners of this project and personal friends with Maxim and Stefan!
We wish them many more adventures and to keep making history!
