Bulletin météo du 8 avril 2015

One PlanetOne Ocean & Pharmaton est sorti du pire des conditions de la journée d'hier : vents de face et mer forte. We Are Water a choisi le mauvais bord au large hier et a dû revenir vers le nord dans des vents forts et une mer formée dans la nuit. Les conditions s'améliorent et les vents devraient être plus faibles lelong d ela côte espagnole aujourd'hui. Renault Captur continue de gagner dans l'est dans des vents de secteur nord, en visant la bordure sud de la dépressions située dans le sud-ouest du Portugal. Peu de changement à venir pour Spirit of Hungary qui progresse toujours dans les alizés.

3)    N/NE winds west of Madeira and north of 30N. South of 30N, generally NE/NNE trade winds moderate strength.
4)    Between the low and Mardeira/Morocco, and ars of light and variable winds. The low weakens enough so that the circulation is cut off. Nearly calm or variable winds over the Gulf of Cadiz.
