No noise with in mast furling...[ quote from Nikki FB post]
After a speedy day averaging 10 knots straight towards Lisbon, it’s been a slow night..
...which combined with a over from the wind we had today - makes for a relatively sluggish and noisy time - noisy due to the slapping of the sails from side to side in the swell. The sailors among you will I’m sure remember the sound well
Not only the wind on the beam but also the waves. That might be an uncomfortable ride for the last couple of days. I wondered about them venturing so far north of the Great Circle route. I am guessing it was to stay in the breeze and not get caught up in the calm weather that was forecast in the area north of the Azores.GFS still has some exciting winds on that last leg, up to 30 sustained on the beam, so we'll see if they keep their speed up in those conditions.
Quick Google search doesn't seem to show any significant currents around there; certainly nothing as notable as the Gulf Stream. Some references suggest there might be a slight southbound current, which shouldn't hurt them.What direction are the currents in that segment? That would make a huge dif in sea state and SOG.
Their bearing is still heading to France for the last 2 days.I might point out that "Somewhere between Monday and Friday" is all before the 9th.

She asks at the UN Ecology Conference, "listen to the scientists".
I ask "does that mean only the scientists who she agrees with - That cause her to say "climate change is an "existential crisis".
What concerns me is that the scientists she recognizes state the term "climate change" is the same as "global warming". Should we then ignore the scientists that are exploring the cooling of the planet and are examining the data associated with this change in climate?
Is the science decided? No need to further the exploration!
I am not at that decision yet. I think there is still more to consider before we decide to radically change the economic paradigm of the world. Perhaps a 16 year old knows best. Perhaps not. That does not diminish her voice.
