I'm still in the Makasar pass. The wind changes all the time. The main goal now is getting around the South point of Borneo island. Keeping a safe distance ;)

The conveyor of the favorable current is out of business. Tides are starting to push me around both physically and mentally. The favorable current was a strong allay. Now things will be less predictable and there is only one way of reacting to this. Let’s do this!

Long forgotten feelings. I have found a favorable current. It’s tasty as a gulp of fresh air, when you open the tent door. This morning I was faced with a mighty storm of more than 20 knot magnitude, but the current was working against it. Wonders of the Makassara pass...

The day before yesterday, my water desalinator ended its carrier. I took it apart and found the culprit - a 4x0.5 cm fish had blocked the pipeline. Water on!

Barely caught a glimpse of the Makassara pass, before it hit me a firm left, right and a closing straight into my face. Will try to go around it.

North-West point of Sulawesi! Wouldn't lie, if I would tell You, that this was planned to reach by 20th of March!!😮

Wouldn't lie, if I would tell You, that I have mixed feelings regarding the Celebes sea🤔😃! Haha, ok, someday, I will tell for sure! It really was amazi...

Coastal rowing is underrated. With Ocean rowing boat, which is not the quickest to manoeuvre it's quite risky. For those, who likes the moment of discovery, there are plenty. Every new bay opens something magical. I love it! Ahh, yeah, I don't have picture of the braki...

As You already know, I'm rowing🚣‍♂ along the coast to avoid the counter current➡. I'm thinking weather it really makes my life easier🤔😁Ok, ok, the main thing is that I can anchor or tie the boat to the buoy for the night without drifting backwards. Sometimes I'm ro...

Celebes sea currents ain't no joke! 

Sometimes, not often, I have to row🚣‍♂ back➡ to continue forward⬅! This happened few days ago, when I got too far away from the coast. The countercurrent stopped my progress, tried next day my luck, but it seemed impossible to mess...

After 40 hours waiting 🧘🏼‍♂on the buoy the headwind dropped during the night, so I🚣‍♂ rowed under the moon from 1am to 5.30am. Speed was like in the "good, old days"😂 It was still dark, but managed to find new buoy to tie the boat, before I switched off to enjoy so...

My progress⬆ have been very slow, while rowing 🚣‍♂around the north tip of the Sulawesi🏝, but I'm so grateful🙏🏼 to be able to enjoy this beauty🌊

Yesterday, after the post with fishing house the wind dropped, so I was excited to row some more nautical miles. Weather forecast seemed to be ok, I even dreamt to reach the horn. It wasn't big of a distance for normal Ocean conditions. There is a lot of local currents...

This is hilarious. I rowed for about 4 hours and then hit a "wall"😀

My intended route🚣‍♂ is to row around north tip of Sulawesi island. Didn't I knew  that there gona be wind about 10-12knots? I knew, I just wanted to row so much, so I tried🤠

I guess the night from Su...

I have a lucky buoy!

I started at 4:00 in the morning and finished at 22:00. 18h of gymnastics with oars. I almost missed Sulawesi. It all ended in a classical way - to get into the bay, I had to crawl against the tide. Voila - a buoy!
