Around The World Voyage : Commentary : Leg 4

May 15, 2002

To Dan onboard "Nordhavn":

The weather looks excellent for the next 6 days (that's as far out as I can get).

Conditions should be very nice around Barbados with winds in the 15 knot range and seas under six feet. Progressing along, the winds will increase but are not predicted to blow more than about 20 knots until you reach about 72 degrees west where you will make your turn more to the southeast towards Panama. Seas are rougher to the west of Aruba (seas in the 8 to 10 foot range) but it's scheduled to improve by Friday of this week.

In watching this weather for the past few weeks, it seems that the roughest weather you will experience will be west of Aruba with winds in the 25 knot range common.

I'll be keeping a close eye on all of this.

Be careful and the best of luck.
