Re: Atlantic Delivery

So I'm curious if the web converters I found are close to accurate. Taking the data from point 44 and converting the distance to point 50 gives me a value of right about 78 nm (90 miles) in a little over 12 hours? Is that correct? I used this site:

Re: Atlantic Delivery

I should note that the data comes from Boaties' SPOT track.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

I just calculated 143-150 nautical miles more or less. since yesterday using your same tools. Almost 24 hours ago. +/- given he hasn't responded in over 1 hour.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Casual, Pwdrskr, et al,
Yeah, I'm following Phil across like everyone else here....I mean, an eastbound US to EU North Atlantic passage in FEBRUARY....
Brrr cold....and a fairly stinky weather at times!!
My hat is off to him as well!!


And, while I understand the nearly-live tracking that many are thrilled with, and the ability for us all to comment/speculate on what's happening out there....FYI, there are many others' historical tracks that you can see, evaluate, etc. and see where they had to change course drastically due to weather systems, forecasts, etc...

Just as an example, here is my track from 2007....Eastbound in June/July....(and Westbound in Nov/Dec..)

Looking at my track, you can see a significant course change near 71* W, continued on for three days, taken due to significant weather (full gale/storm force winds) ahead....and then an abrupt course change near 63* W (favorable wind shift after frontal passage)....
And farther along another abrupt course change near 49* W, taken due to head winds (and squalls), then returning to my desired course a day and a half later, as favorable winds filled in...

There are many such sailing tracks out there....and while I'm not a blog person, you can find some of these tracks on sailing blogs....or better yet, just ask around, post questions here and on the SSCA disc boards, etc. asking for details on passages / tracks and weather influences!!
You can get an education from those as well..


Just thought some might want to some other tracks to look at, after Phil arrives....



Fair winds.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Thanks Salty, seems pretty consistent. Guess I was close. This is a great thread. Learning lots about weather and strategy. Thanks to all the contributors.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Zeehag, I agree. I think he'll stop in Funchal for a breather and fuel and then home free. Well said Mknebes this IS the BEST thread ever.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Now Phil made one third (or slightly more) of his progress towards Madeira (for the rhumb line). Do we have another two weeks of excitement before us?

he will be punching into headwinds if he stays on that course,once the azores high re-establishes itself early next week .
he ideally wants to be pointing for the azores if he wants to stay on the north side of the high,and keep the SW winds.

still a long way to go though!

he may be soon!
looks like an area of low pressure formng south of the azores late next week,with gales to the north,and NE winds to the south!

hopefully the low will move off before he gets in the area,it will be interesting to see what transpires

Hard to stop in Funchal. Very few free berths. ( mind you February )

not to mention the 1000 or so miles of NE winds he will need to go through to get there
