Re: Atlantic delivery

Looks Boatie has covered above 300 nm in some 42 hours and is entering the deep blue now. With the help of the current it mean he is in no hurry, but has quite nice sailing. My bet he would turn east about 30 degrees was rather good one
I think he will try to keep between 30 and 33, going weather wise.
Still my bet is he is going straight for Azores

Re: Atlantic delivery

Boatys last 7 track points over the last 18 hours make it look like a dead run to Rum town Bermuta.

Must be running low on Libations and tabacy.

Re: Atlantic delivery

Id be surprised he'll stop in Bermuda.

wonder why he didn't buy a spot TRACE as opposed to a Gen3 device, if all you want is tracking

Re: Atlantic delivery

he's got 15-20knts from the south with possible waves directly from the east, shifting north.
Picking up today 20-30knts.

He's being pulled by the pressure up NE as it moves toward EU. He's gonna ride that wave all the way to Sillytown, Spain.

Noticed he shifted e-ne.

I still predict Bermuda if he feels he needs to take a leak. Reserve rest stop.

Trace is a track only SPOT device, with the cheapest monthly service plan ( around $9/month) whereas the Gen3 is a full functional unit , ( limited text messaging etc )

Looking at the current synopis for 21st, Id say he's being headed, which is why I suspect he's making so much easting. he's almost on a rhumb line at the moment. I suspect he's balancing how much northing to make to great circle, against the possibilities of nasties.

The low pressure will pass much quicker east then he will so it will not be a factor. Currently most lows are crossing the atlantic in two-three days !!!


Hell do a fast passage at this time of year , possibly too fast !!!

I said 14-16 days excluding stops

Re: Atlantic delivery

He may actually just be keeping his options open. When he's in reach of Bermuda, he will be looking at what potential awfulness lies between him and the Azores, and the same situation will apply between the Azores and the port in Spain. He has to balance time against wear and tear on the boat and factor in his well being.

My two cents.

Ann

I think you're on that.

My guess now is he's gonna be on the south side of B. Seems like neg time to pull in rather than just keep going. He'll judge it as he gets info.

Re: Atlantic delivery

if he sails the boring route, err southern route, he should be fine.
looks like mr toads wild rĄde north atlantic....

good thing boaty has sailed once or twice before this grande adventure so he knows which end is which and which stuff remains out of water and all that...lol

Re: Atlantic delivery

I be surprised if he stays unusually south , he risks headwinds, or variables

The issue will be gaining Northing , unlikely to do it too early , but to make Gib he'll have to get up close to the Azores and that's when at this time of year, the brown stuffs all over the place.

Whether he passes just south or north of B is some what irrelevant IMHO.
