Gentile Sig. Grugnola,

desidero rivolgerle, a nome del Presidente della Repubblica, Giorgio Napolitano, i migliori auguri per aver completato il 19 di Agosto scorso a Ventimiglia la circumnavigazione solitaria attorno alle coste italiane in kayak, cominciata ad aprile a Trieste.
Nel rappresentarle l’apprezzamento del Presidente Napolitano per lo spirito sportivo e il senso civico che ha animato la sua impresa, significativamente dedicata al 150° anniversario dell’Unità d’Italia, l’occasione mi è gradita per associare il mio personale saluto.

Cordialmente,

Pasquale Cascella.

(Consigliere del Presidente della Repubblica per la Stampa e la Comunicazione).

In 2011, Guido Grugnola completed a single-handed circumnavigation of the Italian peninsula in his kayak, from the Slovenian border (Trieste) to the French border (Ventimiglia). in 2012 and 2013 Guido was at sea again for the circumnavigation of Sicily and Sardinia. A total paddling of 3200 miles to present the natural heritage of the Italian coastline, in an attempt to save it from abuse and contamination.

In his blog rounditalycruise.it he published images and video of the lesser known shorelines of the mainland, Sicily and Sardinia, shot on a daily basis in a way they’ve never been seen before with emphasis on the geomorphology, natural heritage and biodiversity, while at the same time focusing on the urbanisation of the Italian coastal areas. Our hope is that long sections of the wonderful shorelines of the country will be saved or restored for future generations.

Trieste to Ventimiglia:
2009 NM – 94 days – average mileage 21.0 NM/day
Circumnavigation of Sicily:
599 NM – 25 days – average mileage 24.0 NM/day
Circumnavigation of Sardinia:
587 NM – 21 days – average mileage 28,0 NM/day
