Bob McDavitt's ideas for sailing around the South Pacific.
Disclaimer: Weather is a mix of pattern and chaos; these ideas are from the
patterned world TROPICAL TOPICS Cyclone MARCIA did a surprise increase to
Category 5 on Friday and the had gusts over 200kph upon landfall see my
blog at
At present the remains on MARCIA are fading in the Tasman Sea and the
remains of LAM are over Western Australia:

SPCZ=South Pacific Convergence zone.
SPCZ is expected to develop over Coral Sea to Fiji and is worth watching
over the next week, its activity may turn into a tropical depression or
stronger at any time.
STR/NZWEATHER = Sub-tropical Ridge
The STR is expected to stay over northern NZ, so that sailing around NZ is
likely to be light variable winds until later this week when increasing NE
winds are expected ahead of a trough from the north getting strong around
Cape Regina by around Sunday 1 MARCH See my yotpak at for terms used.
