South America - French Guyane. We went to make the Emerillion Route, but it was too difficult. We run out of food. For last two weeks we had been eating one fist of rice with one spoon of sugar per day for a person. Maybe You know the stroy of Raymond Maufrais, Frenchman, who disappered in the rainforest? We had been following his route.
Because the jungle is so dense, we lost contact (no signal for satelite phone and GPS either) and our sponsors organised rescue expedition. But the problem was to locate us, so guys in Poland were waiting for any signal from us. At least we managed to came back without help from outside
Cape Horn - the best time is in January, February. If all will go as We think ("We" - because my friend will go with me
), We have chance to make in next year. In next week I'll have new project of the boat. 8,5 m. long. Open, without cabin ofcourse
. The biggest problem I have with the engine. I need inboard 240 - 300 HP diesel, but is too expensive for me.
The boat will be built from totally new material; code name of the fibres is "X-fiber". Strong as kevlar, but much cheaper
Have to finish - time to go home
