This is what it looks like when it’s calm down here! Left with few to no options yesterday after getting becalmed east of Isla Delonfso, the only sensible thing to do was to make a dash for for the south side of a band 35-40 knot westerlies due to sweep the entire area.
Protected from the strong westerlies by the low pressure trough, I could relax and take stock.
I soon realized that getting away from the Horn seemed every bit as hard as getting here.
Without a good exit strategy in place, I buy some more time by heading for the trough axis. It was cold, foggy, and I swear raining rocks and stones.
