Adventurer Rows Across the Pacific...

...only to be rescued 65 miles short of his destination when strong, adverse winds sap his remaining energy.

"...the journey was not about breaking records; he is not the first person to row solo across the Pacific and is not yet sure whether his trip is the longest solo journey. Instead, he said, the voyage was about testing his own limits.
'"The reasons of my trip was double. First of all was to cross the Pacific," Bellini said. "But the other reason of my trip was making a trip inward. So it was discovering something of myself."'
I'm betting that last 65 miles don't much matter.
