Problems returned

Christmas has gone, and old problems returned :(. During two last days winds and currents moved kayak over 70 miles (110 km) to the North. Today Aleksander is paddling in good direction, but it takes him another few days to catch up.

Current situation reminds me what said Andrzej Araminski (designer of Aleksander's kayak). As a main challenge he pointed the very low driving power of this boat. The power of single paddler is much, much lower comparing to what sailing yachts or power boats have. This is the main reason, why Aleksander has no chance in the direct fight with ocean. All he can do is just wait for favorable conditions.
