COMPLETION OF THE DARING EXPEDITION ACROSS THE BAY OF BENGAL BY SIX BOYS

 

Six young men set out for a journey across the Bay of Bengal from Kolkata to Port Blair (Andaman Islands) in a tiny boat without a canopy, un propelled & unescorted.

They started on 16th January,  2013 from Kolkata and touched the shore of Port  Blair on 3rd  February, 2013, tossing and bumping on the  strong mighty  waves and battered by the strong north wind. The boys have done it by their sheer guts, skill and wit.

This event was a Rowing and  Wind sailing Expedition  organized by Sea Explorers’ Institute to commemorate the 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami  Vivekananda.  The message of  the Expedition was  ‘To  cross thousand obstacles and to advance  and  proceed  forward.’ – this was what   Swamiji wanted to teach the youth.

The Expedition was sponsored by Ministry of Youth and Sports, Government of India and supported by Indian Navy.
