The 1st Transatlantic Kayaking Expedition of Olek Doba
“I leaned out of the hatch. Navigation lights covered the kayak and the space around it. There is nothing on the surface of the ocean. I felt an impact to the back of the hull, near the rudder again. “For sure a shark” – I thought. I had such a meeting already once. I was sitting in the cockpit with a paddle in my hand and I hit the shark twice in the head. Now the paddle was tied with ties to the deck. I leaned halfway out of the cab. Just in case I grabbed a camera to possibly take pictures of the night visitor. After a while it showed up. It was swimming by the starboard at the height of the cockpit. Head rounded. Eyes small. We looked at each other”.
