Ari will be passing Madeira tonight. He is enjoying lighter winds, calmer sea and warmer air.
However the sailing is and will be more challenging than expected. He has no wind data due to the storm blew wind sensor from the mast three nights ago and the spare one ain’t working quite as it should be.
Also there have been issues w/ autopilot but Ari was able to fixed those.
There is still a very long way to go. The whole Atlantic crossing basicly. Winds will be differently difficult and there are fierce thunderstorms to expect.
Ari’s goal was to get to Guadeloupe in two weeks. Due to the three storms and lack of wind data the ETA will be some days more.
