    Jeanne Socrates - nonstop solo RTW 2018

    Could be planning to stay tucked up in the lee of Stewart Is. There is plenty of room between the coast & the North Traps. Going around the South traps will expose her to the very strong NW winds forecast for Saturday.

    PredictWind Models - which one?

    You could read the 'Forecast tips' in the help section of their website. You should be aware that there is some validity in claim that any forecast more than 72 hrs ahead is speculation. Also, in respect to Jack`s comments. Metservice have been having trouble getting their daily forecasts correct: https://www.stuff.co.nz/science/108882218/weather-forecasters-challenged-by-recent-bad-weather

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    I believe David Houghton first explained the influence of the direction, relative to the coast, of the gradient wind on the thermal wind in his book 'Wind Strategy' published in 1985
