Weather Routing

Now that we have less than a day to our departure, the proposed weather routing of our iPad app Weather4D Pro becomes more relevant.

We should be pushing off the Dory Club float at 4pm EST and expect a mild northerly wind. Likely good conditions to get the gennaker out and keep Ulf happy. Saturday, it looks like we’ll be looking for wind as it shifts from north to east to south.

Sunday night looks interesting and could become our “weather feature” as gusts up to 40kn are predicted – should be fun with the wind coming out of the SW.

If you have a look a the video below, the system suggests that we stay on the rump line until north of the Cape and then turn SW. From Sunday onward, we should benefit from the Gulf Stream (indicated in green and yellow/red) that should push us between 0.3 – 3kn.
