There was no escape looking at the weather map for the North Atlantic and its forecast. I have not studied this enough in the past but it looks a bit akward and exceptional with these two high pressure systems covering 95% of the North Atlatic surface. On top of that, the centers of the two dominating high pressure systems state the same pressure level of 1031mbar, with little drop towards each other.
At our current position we read 1025mbar atmospheric pressure, which results in 6-8kn true wind speed (TWS) only, sunshine with some distant clouds and plenty of whales.
We keep motor sailing.
