Hadas Feldman is an amazing sea kayaker for sure, but more than that she's something of an enigma as well. She's one of those few people who changes the atmosphere simply by walking in. Suddenly the energy goes through the roof and the sun breaks through the the clouds, blue birds come out of nowhere and start to sing. . . Sure, that sounds silly now, but you'll see... Oh Man!
In 2005 two teams of sea kayakers jostled to be the first to circumnavigate South Georgia Island. A "British" team consisting of Peter Bray, Nigel Dennis, Jeff Allen and Hadas Feldman (of Israel) were first to announce their intent. Up until this point "announcing" was for lack of a better word, traditional. By announcing your plans, paddlers had time to build up interest which is of course important when seeking funding for such excursions. As we all know now it also gives others an opportunity to beat you to the punch.
