The European Road Map
As the night comes to an end, our two long duration gliders continue to pursue their waypoints across the North Atlantic.
To the north, Silbo continues to the South West towards his way point in search of the strong southerly current shown above in the Mercator/MyOcean sea surface currents. As of tonight's position Silbo is measuring roughly 45 km from the edge of this mystical current. If this current holds true, this will shoot us south, being the first favorable current in quite a while. If this occurs, we will then be well on our way towards the equator, and then... Brazil!
To the south, Challenger as well continues to pursue her waypoint: due west. Now that we have rounded the eastern sector and curled to the north, we hope to fly west along the current created by the eddy field we are in the midst of. After making some progress west, we hope to catch the strong North jet that is visible in the image below that goes off screen. We will continue to keep a keen eye on Challenger's progression through the field and keep everyone updated.
