Stalled in Mid-Ocean

I was somehow given to understand that Aleksander Doba, the Polish kayaker paddling across the Atlantic Ocean, had completed his trip. Quite the opposite is true. While determined to carry on, he is still 800-miles at sea, and each of these massive lows that have been raking the country with cold and snow, are driving him backwards and north. To get more favorable conditions, he needs to be much further south, but persistent weather conditions are determined to send him back to Europe. He has spent 3-weeks going in circles. Here’s the link to Jeff Moag’s article for Canoe & Kayak Magazine with all the details.
