8 hours left

Only 15 miles (25 km) left to the beaches of Acarau. 15 miles means for Aleksander 8 hours. Now it is 9:30 pm in Brazil, so he should be get to the shore at 5:30am tomorrow local time (Wednesday, Feb 3rd).
Tomorrow sunrise in Fortaleza will be at 05:40, so he will probably wait a little bit, not to risk landing in the dark.

Now we could guess statistics for whole expedition:
 - total time on the ocean: 98 days, 20 hours
 - total distance by GPS: 3320 miles (5340 km)

For the most actual position visit Aleksander profile on Spot service.


Thank to rmati424 we have two very important informations:
 - tides for tommorow: 0100GMT low, 0728GMT high, 1330GMT low
 - forecast for surfers says about 1m waves for this beach.

And finally, in the latest message Aleksander sends greetings for every follower.

    Just thinking about this whole ocean and the distance and the time and the huge open space makes my head spinning very heavily.

  4. According to the GPS, he is now 500 meters from the beach. Moving slowly to the west, looking for friendly harbor.

    At least two guys from Poland are ready to help him on the beach.

  5. Good morning Aleksander! Congratulations with this incredible achievement!! If I were you, I would cry, and then want a cup of coffee and freshly baked bread with friendly people around me after being on the ocean for 3 months. I wish I could be there to celebrate. Welcome back on land.
