Position update, May 17th 2014, 2pm

Bart : "...very tough, but staying strong, a lot of similarities to my 5 day solo, non-stop, unsupported crossing of the Hawaiian Island chain..."

Lat -16.731823,  Lon -150.814240, Huahine island very close by.

Bart paddled almost 2/3 of the way. The conditions are very tough, very rough. But I know he can set his mind right to mind over matter and tries his hardest to bite through it. It's a lot of weight with all his gear, all his supplies and water on board. His ground speed is effected by that. It is 2pm now, 5 more hours before the sun sets.
I will post another update around 9:30pm when his resting period has started already. Then I will have another update how he feels.

Aloha from Maui, Dagmar

  1. Might be a bug but Bart's position is not updating on my pc
    I see he's very close to Huahine. I live there. He is drifting a lot during teh night... He has to be careful tonight if he is still close to the island. It's a very rural place and there are not a lot of lights visible from the sea at night...
