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.


Welcome to the equinox as at 20 0430 UTC,

Followed by a Full moon = the Passover at  23 1202 UTC

so EASTER (redemption anniversary) is 270000UTC

(well, maybe 270200UTC corrected to Jerusalem time.)

(open episode 6-- may not be available in your region )

(of course you may listen to the other episodes too, thanks to LINUS WILSON).



The rain maps for the past week or two show an increase in activity in Indian Ocean and South Pacific. See
