Back to paddling forward

It seems that finally, after two weeks of turning around by storms, Aleksander gets back to paddling forward. Last 5 days was quite optimistic, he did 75mi (120km) in correct direction. Of course it is much below expected average, still 1200mi (2000km) left to Fortaleza.

Today is 40th day on the ocean. He still has food for 60day, but it won't be enough if he didn't manage to break through storm zone and find the South Equatorial Current. Now he should does his best to keep south direction. When he will be approximately 200 miles (320km) to the South, his chances for successful finish increases significantly.
