Great day

Hurray! Today our paddler has passed Turning Point. This is very important moment because of three reasons:
  • Turning point is the beginning of South Equatorial Current. This very strong current will drive Aleksander directly to Fortaleza.
  • Mentally Aleksander is starting the second half of the expedition. This should be easier now.
  • Weather on South Atlantic more stable than near Equatorial. So every day there should be less storms.
It's amazing how tough guy he is. After nearly 30 days of bed weather, still optimistic and paddling 40 miles (65 km) a day.
