“After 122 days and nine hours, I entered the waters of the Caribbean sea. The Atlantic crossing is over. Thank you all,” announced the adventurer by e-mail.

The message was accompanied by a not very legible picture on the screen of his GPS.

“I need crossed the Meridian, crossing the Atlantic was successful. Now I have to find a way to land near the port, I currently go to Florida, but I’m still far from the shores of the greater Antilles,” wrote Savin.
