I tried that link on her website and got a chart with her position from last-night's Pacific Seafarer's radio check-in. I just tried it again and got the same thing. I think we're just going to get her once-daily radio reports from that site (when she can make them), not a sat-tracker position.Buried on her home page is this: "Where are Jeanne and "Nereida" now? ..... Click here to find out" - this is the link:
That's why I signed up for the classroom (though abbreviated) ASA version. Same materials, same tests. But it presented deadlines and forced me to do the work. Even though, as usual, there was no time available...Thanks. I plan to start Starpath Navigation’s online wx course some time this winter, when I have more time (which never seems to materialize...funny thing, free time... )
I don't think she will be as far south as you seem to be showing her. If anything, she's going to be blown north before the worst hits, and I'd rather be north of that incoming low anyway. [edit: Depending on the model, north of the Strait is pretty awful too.]Tomorrow (Friday) looks like a long, unpleasant day where she will be. Southerly wind gusting to 44 knots by early afternoon (1300), with waves peaking at 10' every 7 seconds:
For a course, deadlines are very good, I agree. (Alas, being Canada, no ASA up here, but I’ll see if I can find a suitable equivalent course).That's why I signed up for the classroom (though abbreviated) ASA version. Same materials, same tests. But it presented deadlines and forced me to do the work. Even though, as usual, there was no time available...
Yes, google LSD and rye/ergot...there are historical records of medieval German peasants eating mouldy rye and being possessed by the devil, or some such happenings...I just read Jefe's book. Didn't think I'd learn about the physiological effects of bread mold. Good luck and god-speed Jeanne!
Thanks for this.For weather, Steve Dashew's book is quite good at explaining the 500 mB chart. Free download of it. Takes days to read; settle in for a week's evening reading to really digest.
I've also liked this one:
You can't read enough about weather before setting out for long sailing trips. A lot of sailing magazines probably still have old weather articles available online too.
As climate change brings more changes to the atmosphere, beware the shoulder seasons, when summer turns to winter around the equinox. Lots of different heating the atmosphere. Jeanne as usual is a bit late, best of luck to her.
