This link should help you figure it out on the currents:
OSCAR - Ocean Surface Currents Analyses - Realtime

Here's wind/wave data...looks ugly!
Oceanweather Inc: Current Marine Data

Hope this helps a bit

From the looks of this plot it seems he needs to get to below 2.5 degrees south to get out of the east setting current OR go north of the equator for a very strong west setting current. If he stays south he'll start getting some real current help as he approaches 100 degrees W.
Of course the wind and waves are working against this as a storm moves up from Chile. All best wishes.
