23 Jan Farewell Argentina
Finally, finally we are headed north and east. Looking to the west, the sky is filled with birds focused on Seaburban’s wake as if we’ve stirred up some avian feast on our way east.
We will have wind for days if not weeks. The plague of calms seems behind us and I am glad to be moving away from the coast of Argentina and the Chilean Andes. Both conspire somehow to produce weather you would not wish on your worst enemy.
Moving north, then west enabled us to get over top of a significant depression and avoid the 35-45 northerlies that followed in its wake. Now going northeast will allow us to move with the westerly flow over the top of a series of small lows that will evolve here over the next 7 to 10 days. Farther south is closed off with calms and contrary winds.
It seems we are back in business and, for me anyway, none too soon.
