Since last week, Silbo has rounded the center of the large eddy we were navigating and has serpentined along with the current up to the Northern branch of the Gulf Stream.
To make things even better as Silbo continues to fly over 40km / day, the roadmaps we are using for navigation all seem to be agreeing quite well as shown in the following images of the Copernicus, HYCOM and RTOFS model outputs respectively.
For now, as Silbo starts heading back in to the meat of the Gulf Stream, we will continue to fly to the North East, keeping the way point where it is throughout the remainder of the week. As the stream carries the glider to the North, we will eventually want to cut across the branch of the stream as we will then need to continue a North East trajectory as we aim for northern Europe.
