Position at 15:00 UCT 21/5/14 37 35N 28 10 W 120 miles to Ponta Delgado, Azores so with a bit of luck Milanto might be in a harbour this evening! wind all over the place from 0 to 20 knots and from any direction it takes a fancy to so VERY frustrating.
Check out Milanto's latest updates:
Finally the Rai crew managed to reach us on the satellite phone
listen to : http://www.radio.rai.it/podcast/A45634835.mp3 in Italian from around 14.20 mins from the start of Caterpillar show!
http://www.radio.rai.it/podcast/A45634835.mp3As the crew is not that expert, especially the Nerd ,we have of course opted for the safest and therefore not the faster route to the Azores..We have reached a point father north than the actual route, so the winds have died somewhat but this should now take us in an easier way down to the Azores.Tuesday evening the low pressure should reach us and then for three days we should be Ok, staying just out of the centre of the storm where the weather is an unknown of strong rusts and hard rain.. One of the crew is not feeling too well right now which is bad luck but we are kepping moral high on a diet of homemade lasagne and meat sauce!
