Re: Atlantic delivery

Personally when on a long passage the first week is always the toughest one for me as I try to get acclimated to a different diet and little sleep pattern. Once I get this by me I'm good to go, I would not make stops along the way as I'd have to go thru the same process every time..no thanks!

+1. sort of.
Not the diet or anything but just getting slowly relaxing into being offshore (usually solo) again.
And stopping, even just for some fresh milk always takes at the very least least a week and costs hundreds.
Once out there just keep going. Unless it's the Azores of course

Re: Atlantic delivery

That looks like 116NM in 12 hours.
That 440 is a rocket!

Re: Atlantic delivery

Don't get too excited he is getting a lot of help from ocean currents

Re: Atlantic delivery

He is turning towards Bermuda, but my feeling is his first stop will be Azores, with no boat problems

True. But I'm nothing if not fairminded, so if you shoot a bottle over to me, I'll happily give you my fair and honest assessment

Re: Atlantic delivery

If nothing else we are all giving Boaty a lot of interesting reading when he first gets in range of his next hot spot. We will be able to read all his comments on the Lagoon and on our posts.
I say Azores as his first stop. HE will need smokes by then for sure. Otherwise when the Spot is turned off how will we follow him with out the plume of smoke from his hi helm station. LOL

Re: Atlantic delivery

At what latitude does he change direction and head east?

ESN :0-2441613
Type :TRACK

Latitude :27.76856

Longitude :-79.48608

Time :
Thursday, February 20, 2014 1:30:48 AM

And our first betting answer is 27.76 degrees. Who had closest to 27.7 degrees before heading east?

Any one else that wants to enter their bets PM me and I'll send you the routing number to my account in the Caymans

Re: Atlantic delivery

It looks to me Boatie has his SPOT on himself, and now we know when he is on deck (transmitting) and under the deck (nontransmitting)

Very good hypothesis!! Hopefully he can fill us in when he gets with in reach of land. I say he stops in Bermuda just for the fact that I don't think he can go the whole trip without checking in on CF. He's addicted to us.
