You can do some internet searches on ocean currents, pacific ocean currents, pilot charts.
Go to the NOAA site and try to find pilot charts for the pacific.
can you get to a library to find the British Admiralty pilot charts?
Read Thor Heyerdahl, he's an expert on drifting across the Pacific.
Thank you very much!
We did some homework, but we were a bit worried because based on the maps he should have been in a better current already, It's pretty heavy to row a 1300 kg heavy boat against the current... and maybe sailors who recently have been in the area have some good tips and information
The good news is that for the last 24 hours he is making progress to the south!
What really is important is his moral: the past weeks he was fighting against current, waves and wind, he reads his guestbook on the website
(he has got a NERA fleet on his boat) and I know it will be a big boost for his moral to hear from sailing fanatics all over the world
If someone feels the need to encourage him in any way, here is the link to his guestbook:
thanks and sail on!
