We will be heading north soon but you will be able to to follow our progress in two ways. You will notice at the top of the blog you can see our position on the Predictwind tracker. I only just fixed the html for this so I hope it continues to work. You can also click on the link here -> Predictwind Tracking page to get a full screen version of the chart. Interestingly, in the new version you can also view the weather that we are forecast to be seeing at the time.
|The tracking page with weather overlay selected. We are at the red dot.|
As we have done for the last few years, we will usually post updates to Yachts in Transit daily on passage and when we change anchorages . Our page on Yachts in Transit is here.
We will shortly be beyond the world of normal internet. Facebook has changed a lot of its policies so we are no longer able to post to Facebook remotely nor are our Yachts in Transit posts being mirrored on Facebook. We will still post directly to the blog with our Iridium Go.
As in previous years, a reminder that if you notice that the tracking is not working please do not revert to "panic stations". There are all sorts of technical and operator issues that could cause the systems to not work. If we do have an actual emergency we will activate the EPIRB(s) and PLB(s), use the SOS buttons on the Iridium Handheld or Go and/or call RCC directly.
Moce, Vinaka vaka levu Fiji for all the good times.
