Totally !! Question , to be able to do so do you need to have subscriptions to the various agencies ( eg windy , predict ) if so what does it cost , I appreciate that full ocean going systems are not needed for more local journeys so basic stuff will do .

Ha ha , I think I know what you mean but don’t think I could manage that on my home Comp , certainly not on my phone at work !! Predict does me ok , even now know how to get their heading ,,, ah , progress !! ( which seems to be pretty perfect for them this morning )

Re: La Vagabonde's crossing

Progress looks good , still in fairly good sailing conditions and no nearer the storm to their right , hopefully they can still get the tail of it for some good easting later , looks like tomo now ( 23rd )

Just got in from packing the spinnaker away on the bow and furling the jib in a squall. Now back sailing with full canvas.

9 hours ago Riley Whitelum posted a picture on Instagram showing someone high up there inspecting the mast. Hard to tell who it is with the low resolution of these satellite-transmitted images, probably Nikki.

Re: La Vagabonde's crossing

I am wondering why they went so far south initially , I would have thot jumping in the Gulf Stream might have been useful for north and eastings , was
It dictated by wind / weather systems ? I tried checking on the early link for predict but can only get current one

gulf stream is way north of them among all those pretty purple bits on the weather map.
