Out of luck if he thinks Ive got them.......

Looking at the track, I wonder if he is going to gently swing to Menorca instead of Majorca?

Who knows.......... I bought the ticket so might as well get on the bus for the ride.

Looks like he took advantage of the wind and has now tacked back to original course.
I cannot for the life of me remember where he said he was heading. It might even be that the weather is allowing him a direct course to Southern Spain/Portugal. I did think he was going to do the Mallorca/Menorca route but...

One thing is for sure. He will get there.

Re: spot the boatman!

Now seems to be pointing to Thread the Needle @ Palma. That Boaty must be playing mind games with us. Bet he heads N a bit to get some southerly running room for Wed. Hopefully not too far N. That N storm will give him plenty of drive to shoot the funnel toward Cartegena. Then it's Doldrums for Thur/Fri.

GO BOATY!!!@!@!@!@

Re: spot the boatman!

Possibly not playing mind games with us so much as picking the more favorable tack for attaining his destination, and keeping things easy for his boat. Why do it any other way?

Cheers, guys.

Re: spot the boatman!

Why? Why? I'll tell you why. Because that Boaty is crazy. Crazy I say. He has seaweed for hair, and I've heard that he can part waves just by looking at them with a slant in his eye. No. Not me wantin' to be in front of his bow on a cold and windy night.

Re: spot the boatman!

He's probably strapped his spot to a sea turtle.
