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!

There it is, the Sulawesi island. Yesterday, the currents “let go” and I could row SW. Today, I can get only S. I need just a little bit more, to hit the Sulawesi jackpot.

A warning signal cut the night, as 2 cargo ships passed the boat. I’m ok. A negative drift pushed me 2nm to the S. Today I’m compensating for that. I lost a spoon.

I’m trying to row towards Manado. It is SW. For now, I’m getting only S. Siau volcano looks important.

The mission was to approach the land, so I wouldn’t get blown too far East. I had to pass two bays because of head-wind and cross-streams. One of them was only 200m away, but I couldn’t get close, no matter how hard I tried. I had to drop it and work my way to the next...

A lot of turtles and sharks and criss-cross streams, but over the horizon  I can see SARANGANI island. It’s Philippines already!

If the conditions are right, it takes about 2 days to cross one meridian (60nm). Once, even 20h were enough. The Eastern length of the 128th meridian will stay in my heart for a while, because it took me 11 days to cross. I’m happy to be in the 127th. Cheers!

In 4 days, I met 4 fishing boats. Very friendly people, offered a tow. Thanks, but no thanks - I explained in sign language.
