WindRaf thanks for an excellent post, your blog is very good and it is very encouraging for me to see that somebody like you has put a great deal of effort into your research that correspond with mine.
Once again thanks for a great blog!

Sven might make a note of this as well.
Spot coverage is non existent in the southern oceans.

Transmitting Data

here is the map

Interesting video of a jury rig that shows some points of making a square sail to get away from a lee shore

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64l29uncetY

Congratulations Manie B with your new task! I wonder if your sleeping arrangement is similar to Yrvind's? Have you thought about the food you're going to take with you? I wish you best of luck in your work on the boat and I hope you'll complete your task fully.

I saw at your YouTube channel your sleeping arrangement. It is lengthwise.

Yes, my whole design is on comfort first, a good bed and nice seats so that you can sit on the lee-side

I am posting this video link because it is a weather reference to cape horn that you wont see very day.
This is a remarkable video of an old pilot schooner rounding cape horn in 1937
What is very interesting is some good footage of weather conditions and the boats path around the horn.
What is downright scary is the 2 children running around on deck, two tough little monkeys, but it shows how different we view safety issues today.
