One low-pressure system after another for Nandor Fa

© Great CircleThe high pressure system which has protected us from the storms on the French coasts for the past two weeks and which brought a cold and dry Easterly wind has disappeared. The wintry lows are back. They form off the United States or off Canada and cross the Atlantic Ocean in two or three days before approaching the European coast by curving their trajectory northward.

Nandor Fa is going to face them at the rate of one a day on his way to Les Sables d'Olonne.

The objective for the Hungarian skipper is at the moment to stay between the Azores high to his South and the series of depressions to avoid the strongest winds. It will then be necessary to find the way through to sail northward and cross the Bay of Biscay with good wind conditions. The end of the Vendée Globe will not be an easy one for him.
