SHTP - The High Moves South

SSS member Pogen posted this interesting overlay of the weather and the current boat positions. The majority of boats have been running near the rhumb line. The Pacific high is moving south to intersect the rhumb line.

Hecla declared his intention to sail as deep as possible, but then he has the speed to make up for the extra distance.

I noticed that AJ on Second Verse seemed headed off towards Santa Barbara last position check. I was hoping that this did not mean a problem. Now it looks as though he may be trying to skirt the high.

It is sad to hear that Bandicoot has retired and that Mirage his heading back after starting a second time.  I hope there are no injuries or major damage.
