Sound Advice

31 January 2018 | 125 Miles South of Cape Horn
4:00pm Wednesday 31st January 2018 ( UTC-4 ) Yes Ross you have the right idea and I have decided no more shilly shallying and dithering about wondering whether the stick will become unstuck. There's only one way to find out and that's to go Westward Ho! so the plan is to aim for 100 degrees West unless of course I get a clear run of South West winds, which appears unlikely. I can say this now with light NW to N winds of below 20 knots for the next day or so. We will see how this resolve stands up when the 35 knot wicked wind from the West makes its ugly appearance. I have been checking the winds on the coastal route from the Horn North and so far it seems I have done the right thing by keeping well clear of these constant headwinds. For the SOD Squad, knowing their keen interest in the wildlife around here, I have included a pic of a pack of seals pretending to be porpoises who followed me for an hour or so near Islotes Deceit. --------------000302060504080103030609--
