I gave it a lot of thoughts, checked the maps and possibilities.
The fix and final plan is:
I will arrive on a fix date on Saturday, 2nd of May back in Buenos Aires at the Puerto Madero Yacht Club (-34.602 -58.3649) where I started. This will be around noon to have time for celebrations. And at night may the celebrations continue…:-)
I will paddle from Uruguay crossing the Rio de la Plata from the Colonia del Sacramento to the Yacht Club in Quilmes (-34.7060 -58.2331) where I had spent the first night at the beginning of the trip. This can be best any time and day earlier than Friday the 1st of May, as I can have some good rest and prepare the last plans for the final 20 km leg for the final arrival with my Argentine friends.
I will not be able to arrive much earlier than May 2nd (I think…), but will do my utmost to not be later. If weather or destiny likes to prevent me from arriving on May 2nd, I will have to skip some distance, as plans will be set and I urgently need to be back in Germany/ Augsburg to attend the celebrations for the “World Paddle Awards” on May 9th where I am invited as a Top 3 finalist…
All of my “not only Argentine” and not only “paddling” friends are invited to attend the celebrations! Please mobilize all kayaks, boats and floating devices around Buenos Aires for a gigantic escort into the Yacht club (or such…)! Maybe some of my friends I met on any other place of this gigantic continent may make it also to be there?
I am so much looking forward to be back! This night I had a night mare – I was back and nothing happened 🙂
