Trimble Nomad Handheld Integral to World-Record Water Distance Attempt

Human-powered Boating Adventurer Will Use Waterproof Handheld for GPS Positioning, Wireless Communications and Photography, and Trimble Will Provide a Free Nomad as Part of the Event

On an optimal-weather day during the week of August 29 – September 2, Kolodziejzyk will set out in a specially designed, state-of-the-art, carbon fiber pedal-powered boat called Critical Power 2 (CP2), aiming to churn his way past the existing record. Carter Johnson paddled a surfski 242 kilometers (150 miles) on Lake Merced in California in 2006 to set the existing record. Kolodziejzyk hopes to prove that legs are slightly more efficient than arms over long distances on water.
