NW Wind + Swell

Day 7  • 
🇺🇸 - I did great on the water yesterday! It was a NW wind and swell. By paddling just the right angle, I could go SW as I wanted. I'm a surfski paddler and I read waves. I found a great angle on the waves. Wind:17 knots today, 19 knots tomorrow and 20 after. 🇫🇷 - Belle journée sur l'eau hier avec un...

Getting my Sea Legs

Day 5  •

Freeze dried food doesn't go down so i'm eating bars. I'll adapt, need a few more days and patience. Gonna get some sleep. Sea anchor is attache...

Day 2

Day 2  • 
🇺🇸 Slept on and off every hour or so. Several container ships passed by. Closest was 1 mile so I didn't have to move to call. Current took me north. It's ok. 🇫🇷 J'ai dormi presque toutes les heures. Plusieurs porte-conteneurs sont passés. Le plus proche était à 1 mile, donc je n'ai eu ni à manoeuvre...

Day 1

Day 1  • 
🇺🇸 Stopped for today. Did 12.5 hours paddling. Tired but happy. West wind could take me back to the coast so I set my small sea anchor. All good. Will rest now. 🇫🇷 C'est bon pour aujourd'hui ! Après 12,5 heures d'efforts je suis fatigué mais heureux. Il y a un risque que le vent d'ouest me ramène en...
