    Of course the positions given don't mean much at this stage. The Ultimes are going the long way round but very quickly, the others are all stuck in light winds but have a windward gale coming. So in fact the northern boats (like PD2 and Olmix) might come out of it very well as it looks like they are above the low

    I don't know how they are predicting the arrival time but for some days the forecast has been for no wind in the approach area, so no chance of a record
