“It is with profound regret that we announce the death of the great kayaker Alesander Doba on February 22. He died like an adventurer after reaching Africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro, realising his dreams,” his family said in a Facebook post.

Mr. Doba set a world record with his six month trans-Atlantic voyage – which included a stopover in Bermuda – in 2014.

Mr. Doba began his trip in October 2013; and after more than four months at sea, the rudder on his custom kayak broke in a storm in February 2014, forcing him to journey to Bermuda in order to repair the damage.
