Fw: Sunshine and Shipping....South Biscay.
Tuesday 30th Oct…. PM.
We’re making excellent progress
South with great sailing and even some sunshine! The occasional company of
Dolphins, a Sunfish sighting and a continuous flow of shipping of all sorts from
Gas and Bulk Carriers, Coasters, Crude Carriers, Freighters, Car Carriers and
the Ocean Liner ‘Oceana’ make the day a little more interesting too. Our weather
fax downloads show a deepening low pressure system heading to centre itself over
the UK with frontal troughs and gales extending all the way south to us for
Wednesday evening but we’re hoping to try to make it around the corner of
Northern Spain (Cape Finisterre) tomorrow evening but this could be a tad
optimistic, plan B is to make landfall in La Coruna 35 miles East of the Cape.
