Our friends on land tell us that the weather systems around us have normalized!
With this glorious information, we await the 8pm transmission of Weather Faxes and anxiously download the information.
The 1020 line has moved back towards us, the weird gales are gone, and the Azores High seems to dominate the North Atlantic.
Looking at the wind/waves chart, you can really see how the weather patterns have normalized. There is a very nice and consistent flow of circulation in the North Atlantic. Winds are steady and seas are even. The weather is here! It is time to turn North and make our way to Westerlies!
