Some Way Point Changes for the Morning
Throughout the day, Challenger has continued to chase the current seen in the Mercator European model depicting a strong flux to the west. Although the model doesn't completely agree with what Challenger is recording (very faint southerly current) she continued to make good progress towards the way point. Tomorrow we will give her a new way point back to the north west so we dont get dragged too far south as we round the edge of the warm core eddy
Similarly. tomorrow I plan to propose a new way point to the Silbo team suggesting a way point shift to the south. Looking to the map above, if we continue to follow the current path towards the way point, we run the risk of hitting the wrong side of the eddy we have been chasing. With a way point shifted further to the south, we also will reduce how Silbo is being pushed to the west and hopefully shift that progress in the southern direction.
