It is officially confirmed now:
The expedition "Transatlatic" by Aleksander Doba has successfully finished yesterday.

Yesterday's evening Aleksander spent with friends, celebrating his outstanding success. In local restaurant he ordered the cold beer and seafoods with fresh vegetables. The Man :)

We also have some official statistics:
  • The first touch to the dry land in Brazil, Feb 2nd, 2011, 2:10pm local time
  • The end of the expedition in port of Acarau: 5:50pm
  • Total distance: 3345 miles = 5384 km
  • Total time: 99 days, 6 hours, 20 minutes
Today Aleksander has medical examination and the press conference in Fortaleza. We are all waiting for photos and comment from Aleksander.

For me this is not coincidence that the polish paddler has such incredible accomplishment. Read more about Kayaking in Poland.
