04 Jan Low Rider
It is another spectacular day! I sure hope I’m not abusing my nice day ration for the trip but the weather the past 36 hours or so simply could not be better.
Hats off to John Bullas for getting me firmly latched on to the back of the low that is carrying us down south.
The approach track to the Horn has been abandoned for a beeline. As of 0630 local (UTC -6) the Horn was 620 miles away, bearing 113T. We are headed straight for it.
We are not alone, however, in out rush to the end of the world. It’s a dead heat between Seaburban and a vigorous low that, although short-lived, is playing spoiler. Hopefully the forecast improves.
For now it is fair winds and following seas.
