Here's a Buoyweather chart that I scribbled the C1500 fleet's general positions on. The Farr 50, Joy For All is leading, and the Whisstock Schooner 60, Rockhopper, is maintaining a rear guard. They're really spread out!

That front that passed over the fleet on Wednesday seems to have stalled. Looks like "light and variable" out there to me. The troughs and Lows out there have screwed up the Tradewinds, too. Bummer! The last two times I did it, after the inevitable front came through, we were ripping along at hull speed in Force 8 conditions until we hit the Trades.

Shame when they were getting pasted they could not get farther east. Some did. Sure looks mixed up now. Is that todays chart?
