OAR INSPIRING: Marco Reinard smiles as locals congratulate him on completing his 200-kilometer paddle around Phuket.

“On Wednesday evening, the waves were dangerously high and with no light from the shore it was so dark that I couldn’t see the waves coming. I really didn’t know where I was, so I decided to stop for the night,” said Marco.
PHUKET: Luxembourg national and island resident Marco Reinard arrived at Rawai Pier just after 5 pm Thursday evening, tired, sunburned and triumphant after completing a solo 200-kilometer paddle around Phuket in an 18-foot kayak.

Marco clocked an average speed of 10 kilometers an hour during his 36-hour circuit of the island, which he completed to raise awareness of environmental issues and the impact of encroaching development on indigenous people.
