For the 3rd time since being deployed out of Iceland in 2011, Silbo has crossed the great Mid Atlantic Ridge!


As we prepared for the crossing, the way point was set nearly due directly east of Silbo’s position and the altimeter was activated to prevent an unwanted collision with the underwater mountain range.

However now  that we have emerged from the other side unscathed, I have proposed to move the way point along the same latitude to the north so we can catch the strong northern jet that lies just to our east at a better angle and get more of a push off of it as we head to the north east.
