Butlletí del 23/03/2015

El Cheminées Poujoulat ha entrat al mar Mediterrani on les condicions són bastant tranquil·les en aquest moment. Hi ha brisa lleugera, de manera que seguirà fent progressos lents. Hi haurà algunes millores en la brisa en un dia o dos.

El Neutrogena i el GAES Centros Auditivos estan navegant cap a l'Est amb vents frescos del Nord. Estan apuntant cap a les Illes Canàries, però buscaran passar al nord per evitar les zones sense vent, inevitables al sud de l'arxipèlag, i arrumbar més cap a Gibraltar.

El We Are Water i el One Planet, One Ocean & Pharmaton han quedat atrapats en els doldrums durant dos dies amb un progrés molt lent. No obstant això ara s'acosten a la zona nord de la frontera de les calmes i hauran de tenir alguna millora ja que els alisis del NE començaran a bufar amb més força.

A l'Atlàntic Sud, el Renault Captur està guanyant est per trobar una brisa que li permetrà arrumbar cap al nord i arribar als alisis envers als doldrums.

L’Spirit of Hungary s'està desaccelerant una mica, ja que va trobant vents més lleugers en la seva ruta cap al nord.
