Butlletí del 02/03/2015

El Cheminées Poujoulat aprofita el final de la baixa pressió de l'Atlàntic Sud per guanyar Est abans de virar al Nord. El seu objectiu: superar l'alta pressió de la costa Sud-americana. El Neutrogena i el GAES Centros Auditivos també estan descrivint rumbs més cap a l'est en tenir condicions de vent fluix amb condicions variables que ofereixen diferents rutes.
Per a la resta de la flota, la situació meteorològica serà típica del Gran Sud: vent fort que els permetrà continuar amb el seu avanç cap a l'Est navegant enganxats a la vora de la zona d'exclusió.
