I checked his AIS position and it still shows the last known location in the Azores.

I thank you all - Especially Richard! - for this greatly informative and interesting thread. I follow posts consistently and have learned much regarding this type journey in a boat such as Richard's.

Get It On!! Richard... be careful and enjoy.

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy holiday weekend. We plan to anchor out on our Tolly boat starting tomorrow for a few days of warm fresh water swimming and playing around with our tow behind runabout.

Happy Boating Daze! - Art

We're actually spending three days in the office before flying back across the country on Saturday and resuming our exploration of the west coast. Hard to believe we're entering the latter stages of the year. Here six weeks, home for three, back west for five and then home for the holidays. Well, home plus a trip to NC and on to SC.

Not a holiday weekend where Richard is, but something tells me if he arrives in Cork by the weekend, he will celebrate anyway.

The low that was in Richards way is now gone! Woo Hoo!

The low that has been chasing Dauntless and was forecast 3-4 days ago to go south of Richard, maybe into Biscay, is now hitting Richard. This low started making a turn to the north, basically aiming for Richard, over the last few days, and the turn increased last night and this morning.

There is a high off the east coast of Scotland that might be causing the turn as well as the winds at the 500MB level. Anyway....

Richard is on the east side of this 997MB low which was 1005 MB about 24 hours ago. It looks like when the low came through, he was on the bad side of the low since the winds were blowing in the low's line of travel.

There is a ship near his position reporting SSW winds at 15 knots. Another ship a bit east has 20 knot winds from the south. Richard's course is now NNE I think to keep the waves on his stern. As the low moves north and Dauntless moves east, the winds should start to come from the south and he can change course back to Ireland.

I sent updates last night to give him a warning about the low and what conditions should be overnight and this morning. Not that there is much he can do but change course. Hopefully, this morning's weather data will brighten his day since it seems in a few hours he should have better weather going into port.

From his texts, it seems he might go to Scilly if needed or just continue into Ireland. If the winds return move around from the south I bet he heads back to Ireland. I sure would.

Later,
Dan

He's waggled a lot since Horta. But he knows the conditions at his location better than anyone else.

Who do you see starring in the movie version of "Showtime"?

And what should be the title? "Richard vs the Gods"?

Just click on the map about where you think he is and wind speed and direction plus lat/lon pops up. Click on the word Earth to get more options.
One of the options is to show forecast winds 24 hours out.

Have you guys looked at Parks' suggested site recently? I'm no expert- but this does not look good at all.

West of Ireland looks bad weather wise for next few days. Might be taking a more easterly course.

Just wrapping up with our Maritime Hero. All is looking well.

The worst is over. This was the classic situation of when not too be out.
Barometer dropping like a stone. Long fetch, 40 kt winds and big ass waves.
I've been out in bad wx, but never with waves that are above my head as they pass the pilot house.
My er bilge pump cycled over 300 times since midnight when
This party started. I wasn't worried, as that happens whenever the decks are wet.
But I'm used to seeing 30, not 300. clearly everything in the lazzerette got
Washed.
I've also never seen a foot of water on the deck!
I'm glad its over.
I was more stressed about whether I'd taken the right route. I second guess myself
Also, I saw how the boat behaved. One time it was like the entire boat was lifted and dropped on top of this tremendous wave.
But the flare of the bow stops
Water from coming over the fore deck.

If I'm working that Earth Wind website right, it looks like he's getting hit with almost 30 mph winds from the west. No wonder he's turned east.

What city is he trying to reach? I must have missed it and I don't want to go back through over 700 posts to find it!

Cork in Ireland was the last I read. Maybe considering down wind/sea alternatives now. You are reading the weather report correctly.

Novice here.

Tell me, what does the term "pooped" mean in this nautical context?

Though I've never been in anything like Richard is experiencing, I'm pretty sure that under these conditions he CANNOT afford a beam sea even for an instant. Right??

Pooped is when a wave breaks over, or in his case, into your stern or cockpit.

As to beam seas, it depends on there height and period. Right now I would think neither number would be for the good.
