They should then have strong northerly winds off Portugal before descending quickly to the equator, which they could cross in less than five days. Once in the southern hemisphere, the challenge is to negotiate the Saint Helena high in the best possible way to arrive in less than 12 days at Cap des Aiguilles, at the entrance to the Indian Ocean. This requires catching a depression at Cabo Frio, at Rio, which can "cut cheese" in the high, thus making it possible to make a shorter and higher-speed road. This is what we are looking for with this window, but it remains difficult to predict, because it is quite far away in time and the area is unstable. "
Yeah, we need a Fralo tracker, come back please! Crazy to have two maps with going the same way, both showing Joyon but not the other boat on the water. First world problems fer sure!Already missing Fralo's site. -_-
That was the best way to keep track of all the records. Wikipedia page looks decent, though.
Indeed. And keeping Marinetraffic timestamps sorted. Don't we have anything better to do?First world problems fer sure!
