GRIND TV – That’s right: A 70-year-old man decided to paddle some 4,000 miles across open ocean – completely solo and unsupported – in a craft smaller than most lifeboats.
Not to mention, it was his third time completing a transatlantic crossing. He completed his first – traveling from Senegal to Brazil – after spending 99 days at sea at the budding age of 64. Three years later, he was thrashed around for 142 days during a 5,400-mile crossing from Lisbon, Portugal, to Florida.
If there was ever someone to personify the “Old Guys Rule” mantra, this is the man. But it’s the story behind his latest crossing that demonstrates his unbreakable spirit.
