Today I have very good news for Aleksander fans. He finally manages to get to South Equatorial Current. Yesterday the daily millage increased to impressive value 70 miles (115 km) - this is record value for this expedition. But the most important is that he is paddling in exactly correct direction. :)
800 miles (1300km) left to Brazil, 11 days with yesterday's speed. I'm afraid that it will take longer, but 100 days limit is going to be possible.
