Go North ???

This is a crazy weather pattern. Would we really have the the gumption to go north of the rhumbline / great circle route? The optimal route assumes that weather conditions would evolve over the 12.5 days it predicts it would take Sweet Okole to finish. With luck weather will settle into more typical summer patterns in the next few weeks.

What is the difference between rhumbline and great circle route? Answer in my next blog :-)
