At the age of 72, adventurer Jean-Jacques Savin has succeeded in crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a barrel, using just the tides, winds and ocean currents. He has just set foot on French soil, after 127 days and 5,800 kilometres at sea, yet he is already dreaming about setting off again in his barrel to try to cross the Pacific Ocean.
