From the eyes of our Pinzon
Today during my daily discussions with my buddy on the other side of the Atlantic, Antonio mentioned that we are truly explorers with what we do on these missions; taking the gliders and pushing them to their limits to complete feats that have never been done before. And with Antonio being Spanish and myself of Danish descent, he compared us to Martin Alonso Pinzon and Erik the Red, both great maritime explorers of their time.
To the maps Antonio created using the GeoEye/SeaStar data, we can see the path outlined quite nicely of where we want to go. With the current way point, we want to continue to fly to the west along the jet created by the warm eddy to our south (without falling too far to the south of course) and then cut along the southern edge of the cold eddy that way point is in the center of. The western side of this eddy begins the northern jet that will be our freeway through the coming months.
