Our final sunrise at St. George has come and departure planning is in its final stage. We are planning to cast the lines at 3pm ADT this afternoon. Although I could easily stay another month here in Bermuda but the time is due for another serious and hopefully pleasant ocean crosssing heading ”home”.
We will run a short detour (lower line above) rather than going on the rhumb line (upper line above) shortest distance to Azores. This shall ensure smooth sailing and keeping the low pressure systems at a safe distance.
Nevertheless we will need to keep the low pressure systems under constant observations as some of them might turn to far SE resulting literally in turbolences and getting too close to our pathway.
I am now looking forward to another enjoyable passage.
