Expedition Africa Rodrigues - The Highlights

10.09.2019



The little Island that could ...

Today a week ago, the ambitious idea to host a legitimate Adventure race on an island no longer than 18KM kicked off outside the Marouk Ebony Hotel in Rodrigues. 60 teams of 4 were paired with a local sailor, he himself hoping for victory in the Island regatta which would make up the first leg.

What followed over the next 6 days can only be described as inspirational, not only because of what was achieved by the Athletes themselves, but also by the amazing crew behind the scenes making it all possible!

From Tears to Triumph and back again, we have seen it all over the last week. Congratulations to each and every one of you that believed in our dream and travelled this journey we so lovingly created.

Do you love Rodrigues!!!! Yes we love Rodrigues!!
