A 46-year-old Australian sea kayaker Sandra Robson is on an adventure expedition to sail over 23,000 km and reach her motherland.

Sandra Robson began her expedition from Sri Lanka on Thursday morning and reached Kothanda Ramar temple seashore near Muhuntharayar Chathiram in the evening.

Sandra  is the first woman to paddle across the Palk Strait and she has been on a magical journey by an ancient Kayak route from Germany to Australia.

Sandra  is on an expedition as part of an effort to visit as many countries as possible. She claimed to have visited 12 countries, including Germany and Egypt, in a paddle-boat and aimed to find a place in the Guinness Book  of World Records.

Indian Coast Guard personnel in hovercraft and helicopter provided security to her from the International Maritime Boundary Line (IMBL) up to Dhanushkodi, officials said. She would leave from Mandapam near here on Friday and go to Mumbai in the canoe.

Jehan Driver from the Team at Quest Expedition Pvt Ltd, has been privileged to sponsor her journey.

The sea kayaker from Western Australia has been working as a teacher for the past 20 years. She purchased her first Kayak in 1999. The first expedition was from the beautiful Ningaloo Reef to Western Australia.

Sandra has paddled 6,000 km of Australian coastline and was working as a Sea Kayak guide.
