  1. Interesting to read that the RC had an opinion on his heading. They should have hired me, I projected too that he would be ok. For the record, so did he or he would have listened to the RC’s advice.
  2. A total shit creek, as expected.
  3. Cremer has just sailed through the Azores heading ENE. She can't go much more north due to the sea state projected with up to a whopping 15 meter waves further up north. Windy tells her to go north, but I won't buy it. You don't go into 10 meter waves voluntary. Nor will she looking at her heading.
  4. That new LP with hurricane force winds moves NE towards Schotland atm, and she should not have any trouble when rolling forward windy. A 2nd LP will roll in after the big 1st, but it looks like she can squeeze in between both systems. A bumpy ride perhaps, but fine.
  5. Currently 7+ meter waves, rising to 10 meters later today. Back to 7 meters on Sunday, and 6 meters in tomorrow afternoon.
  6. Weather update for Sorel/Tripon I had a look at Sorel and Tripon and that hurricane force LP moving ENE, west of them. Pic #1 has the big picture with NOAA overlay. Pic # 2 current positions and ECMWF. Both have nice winds atm. When fast forwarding to Saturday with Windity and the Regadat plugin (pic #3), Sorel will be at LSDO when the shit starts hitting the fan. But Tripon would be getting 35+ winds in the Bay of Biscay. I would not be surprised if Tripon slows down to let this monster pass him. Because it would be sailing into a lee shore with 40+ winds pushing him towards it and no wa
  7. I understand his disappointment. 3 hours delta with 3rd, after sailing the globe. This VG makes history for the finish, like last VOR.
  8. A very good summary. With a non-foiling boat from 2007 only 3 hrs behind the newest and quickest foiling IMOCA's in the world.
  9. Indeed, a shitty cam and/or data stream
  10. It's official, JLC takes 4th ranking. Very well deserved imho!
  11. Pls update your tracker by pressing F5, JLC is 79 nm from the finish doing almost 19 kts. That makes ETA in 4 hrs, around 19:45.
  12. He has also OSCAR set up, directly linked to his autopilot IIRC. He had tested all 3 systems (radar / AIS / OSCAR) that the alarms were working. So he went to sleep, and lost his 3rd spot in the process.
  13. Indeed, I made a 1hr calculation error with Bestaven last night and adjusted the ETA for him in my post while you posted this.
