human powered trans atlantic expedition route
|2700 miles from Canary Islands to Barbados
I will start at the Canary Islands off of the West African coast. The Canary current is a southwestward flow that will take me onto the North Equatorial current which is a broad westward flow. It is fed by the Canary current and its waters eventually end up in the Gulf Stream system, via the Antilles current which should deliver me to one of the islands near Barbados.
The average distance that various ocean rowers covered over this route is 2700 to 3000 miles. Rowing times from the Canary islands to Barbados range from a record of 43 days by Emmanuel Coindre to over 100 days.
