Piracy while your on the go is non-existent up there. Park over night a bit dodgy...3rd night in one place you're probably fucked without making some chieftien arrangements. I suggest they don't want to add what potentially could be a huge spread in the fleet due to safety concerns. A rescuer in that part of the world is your fellow competitor, not the locals.
Dunc I said "huge spread" meaning hundreds of miles caused by going into the ITCZ and a huge lump of dirt in the middle. That is a big big fleet area for the RO to worry about with no SAR within cooee. That said heaps of opportunities for big splits even with that WP and as you desire to exist.
Forecasting the Pacific is harder - ECMWF is consistently 5 days better than GFS, but the Pacific is where it has the fewest data points. This leg, and the leg after will be best routed by reverting to historical data & setting intermediate waypoints (let's try and get us around here by such a such a date) - relying on Adrena will send you into a high pressure of hell as you arrive 2 days outside of the forecast accuracy range. For example?
Go to the forecast around New Caledonia and Solomon Islands - pick January 3 and 4. Then click between ECMWF and GFS.
It'll be bloody insane to do the click a button navigation this time around.
As always. Does anyone ever think they can click-route 100%? Sheesh. No science has ever been able to fully predict weather anywhere, let alone the complex interaction between people understanding weather.
