Yes. How he climbs north will be interesting cause he could get stuck with headwinds south and gales north. Tricky call.

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.
+1

I'm still betting he heads north for azores on Sunday.

Just a loose assumption...
May be he want to make as much easting, keeping himself as much to south, as the wind permit, and make northing, towards Azores, as late as it will be possible...
All this thing is REALLY tricky, given the time.

Anyway - hard to believe he will get the opportunity to go for Madeira, i think. Too much of headwinds rather...

Just hope he will be not stucked in something really bad!

I said from the beginning, that Phil would stay south and do a good bit of easting early on...
And, then make his way north as he got east of 50* W (say between 50*W and 45*W), where he'd probably be SE of the tracks of the Lows coming off the US coast AND still be on the west side of an Azores High..
But..
But, I had originally thought he'd be making easting along 30*N (probably between 29*N and 30*), and not between 26*N and 27*N!!! (show's 'ya how good a long-range forecast is, huh?)



Currently he's SE of a front, which is predicted to slow down / stall out (south of 32*N) over the weekend, with a Gale developing near 32*/62*....and he's between that and a stationary high building in near 33*N/29*W...

I'd agree it is tricky, but keeping a good angle on the wind might still allow him to head ENE this weekend (but still staying south of 30*N), hopefully getting out of the way of the Low that seems to be moving in on him early part of next week???
Hopefully getting to 29*N/50*W (or farther east) by Monday...
(But whatever the case, I suspect that he'll head the way the winds force him to... and Gale be damned...)

And, the good news is that by next Tuesday, it looks like he'll be home free, and there shouldn't be too much weather to worry about...and a rhumb line to the Azores looks very doable, but doubt he'd head that far North....and Madeira might be a problem (head winds), maybe he'll fall off a bit until he can pinch up and just head for Gib....we'll see...'ya know a 5 - 6 day forecast isn't too accurate!!!



Fair winds to 'ya Phil!

Opps....Double Whiskey said about the same, while I was on the phone....

Can't really see the point of the Azores too far north from where he is. Maderia would be best for Gib. I suspect he'll only north if headed. Too north and he's courting danger

Re: Atlantic Delivery

This thread is really exciting. Not really liking to be a spectator, I am going to put down this tablet and go to the dock and get busy. Firm in the knowledge that while I work Boatman is doing what I wish I was doing. Can't get there from here if I don't get busy.

You are quite damn right. Just a probability of being headed on the way to Madeira is quite high...
Hope Boatie will be lucky enough to not get headwinds, but...

Hmm.... not withstanding BC's very strong arguable point, I reckon Boatie will only stop if very low on fuel (or baccy) or if boat needs significant repair.

I think this is probably the case and it may well be that he has no access to GRIBs etc.

On another note, I read when some of the posters refer to a Capt. Phil; not sure who this is but I'm dam sure it isn't our Boatie . It just isn't a moniker that he would use
