Uku Randmaa, the first Estonian to sail around the world alone, made it back home on Sunday.

The Pärnu native began his voyage in December 2010 at Cape Verde. From there he set sail across the Atlantic on a 43-foot yacht, Temptation III.

After a year and one month of sailing, and 45,200 kilometers, Randmaa reached his starting point on January 12, reported Postimees.

Randmaa said he avoided media hype during his journey. He said his goal was to get away from everyday routine and stress, but also to prove to himself that he could do it.
