Re: Pacific Target Monitoring

Latest positions. s.y. Ora Del has changed plans and heads towards the Marquesas. He is reporting the Track by SPOT every 10 min,which under normal situations would burn the batteries fast,but he is using a couple of mini solar panels to charge the batteries,so he has no problems in that respect. However,his track .gpx file across thousands of miles will have an enormous number of waypoints. Manual Im OK reports once or twice daily would have been sufficient.

Ive also inserted the optimized track/route for the first 8 days as a guide, based on the latest grib reports.
