'Lost At Sea' Race

Indian Ocean

"Take the helm of a primitive dugout canoe."

Your goal: Navigate 300 miles of vast waters in the Zanzibar Archipelago of the Indian Ocean via an old-school canoe equipped with a bed-sheet sail. A loosely organized event put on by The Adventurists organization, the "Adventure 9: Pioneers' Race" is taking applications now. Say the organizers, "There is no guarantee finishing is possible."
