As the night comes to a close both gliders are continuing to make good progress as they push towards their way points.
To the north, Silbo is flying well with the way point provided by our student group. In the past day he has covered nearly the same distance as he did in the previous two days!
Hopefully with this speed boost, we will soon catch up to the eddy to our south west and see the currents begin to swing around to the south.
And to the South, Challenger continues to fly as she is recording back to back speeds of >12.5 km!
Tomorrow we will compare the out puts of the rtofs, myocean and possibly hycom models to see how much longer our way points will hold before we need to execute a change.
Force Wind Sea & Honor!
