Good days, bad days

Nothing spectacular has happened during last week. Aleksander has some bad weather days, when he is like a leaf on the wind. But there are also good days when he is paddling to Fortaleza like good-old steam engine ;)

He is slowly moving to the South America. Yesterday he was just in the middle of the ocean. 950 miles (1500km) in the straight line to the nearest continent. So far GPS track has shown 1960 miles (3100km), what means that for sure he will break longest kayak expedition record (3318km by Crossing-the-Ditch).

Today is 76th day on the ocean. He had supplies for 100 days, what means he has food for 24 days more. It won't be easy to get to the Brazil in that time. Of course he could limit his daily consumption, and survive much longer, but it is very risky game.

  1. Thank you for the update. I hope he can fish and continue to gather rain water sometimes. Remaining weeks should get slightly easier if he stays within the south equatorial current. So much depends on the weather versus skill and strenght!
