Welcome to Madrid

It was a busy weekend split between Thanksgiving celebrations and preparation for the trip to Spain for the recovery of The Scarlet Knight.  So blogging fell by the wayside.  Now we are at the Madrid airport, waiting for the plane to Vigo.  Time to check in on Scarlet after the 3 am EST surfacing.  We see she continues to make progress to the east, the desired direction, and continues to fight the currents trying to push her south.  We'll continue this procedure for the next few surfacings until we meet up with Enrique from Puertos Del Estada in Vigo tonight.  Many decisions on the boat departure time and how we fly the glider for the remaining few days will be made over tonight's dinner.

The weather watch has begun.   We've been using this web page today at the airport.

Looks like the worst waves over the next few days are early morning on Dec 3, running about 6-7 m in the region around the glider.
