This afternoon, the International Ocean Rowing Society confirmed Mr Konyukhov was within the vicinity of land, and had crossed the "finish line" of the Diego Ramirez Islands, situated at longitude 68.68W.
"With this, he has officially completed his row across the South Pacific Ocean from west to east," a society spokesman said.
The journey is just the first of three legs in his 27,000km journey around the world in his specially-built row boat.
The second leg will begin in December 2019, from Cape Horn to Cape Leeuwin, in Western Australia, and the third will begin in December 2020, from Australia back to Dunedin.
