Ahora en lucha por la cuarta plaza, el One Planet, One Ocean & Pharmaton y el We Are Water han virado finalmente hacia el estrecho Gibraltar. La alta presión que han estado bordeando se ha desplazado al Oeste y los vientos han rolado ligeramente a la izquierda, permitiendo la virada hacia el Este. Están navegando hacia vientos más ligeros que les llegarán aproximadamente mañana.

El viento han estado rolando gradulamente hacia la derecha para el Renault Captur a medida que éste ha ido navegando hacia el Norte. Los vientos son moderados y las previsiones apuntan a que rolará un poco más hacia la derecha mientras siga ganando latitud.

El Spirit of Hungary ha traspasado los doldrums. Sin embargo, los vientos alisios al norte de las calmas han rolado hacia la izquierda y soplan del N / NNW, siendo más ligeros de lo habitual. Esto dará como resultado un lento progreso hacia el Norte, hasta que el viento empiece a rolar un poco hacia la derecha.

*** SYNOPSIS ***
00Z THURSDAY (02-APR-2015)
1)    The doldrums lying between 05S and 02S at 30W. But even north of the
doldrums, there will be some anomalously light and left-shifted winds.
Very light and headed conditions are likely even north of the doldrums
north to 05N and east of 32W. NNE trades will fill better to the
northern doldrums boundary/equator west of about 32W.
2)    North of 05N, NE trades, stronger west of 30W. By 14N, the emphasis
for stronger trades shifts to east of 30W, all the way north to near
3)    High pressure (1029mb) near 32N/31W with a ridge extending northeast
to another high (1033mb) over the southern Bay of Biscay. Moderate NW
flow from off the Iberian coast to Madeira  and the Canary Islands.
4)    A trough of low pressure will be along the Moroccan coast.
5)    High pressure (1028mb) will be near Palma. Between the high and trough,
a moderate to fresh Eíly is expected south of Spain to the Gibraltar
Strait. West of the Strait, a strong Eíly outflow into the Gulf of
6)    Along the eastern Spanish coast, from Ibiza to Barcelona, diurnal
winds prevail with coastal land breezes overnight and morning,
transitioning to SE sea breezes in the afternoon.
00Z FRIDAY (03-APR-2015)
1)    Southern Doldrums boundary between 05S and 04S, with a northern
boundary near 03S-02S. Light and variable winds within the doldrums.
2)    North of the doldrums, the trade winds have backed
uncharacteristically far to the left, blowing N/NNW at relatively
light speed. West of 30W, winds remain left-shifted up to about 04N
before veering NNE/NE and increasing to more typical speeds. However
east of 30W, lighter, left-shifted winds extend north to 07N or so.
3)    NE trade winds generally moderate to fresh from 07N to 30N. From the
Canary to Cape Verde Islands, winds NNE and slightly stronger,
especially close to the African coast.
4)    High pressure (1027mb) near 33N/30W, with a ridge extending northeast
to another high (1027mb) near 45N/09W. N/NE winds from off Iberia to
Madeira and 30N.
5)    Mainly NE/E winds across the Gulf of Cadiz and very light along the
Moroccan coast. A stronger Eíly out of the Gibraltar Strait exit
region into the eastern Gulf.
6)    Moderate Eíly winds across the Alboran Sea and Med south/southeast of
7)    Weak high pressure (1023mb) south of Palma. S/SW wind around the
west/northwest periphery of this high from Denia north through the
Gulf of Valencia and Balearic Sea. This wind is eased along the
immediate coast by drainage winds, and accelerated in the afternoon by
sea breezes.
00Z SATURDAY (04-APR-2015)
1)    Right-shifted NE trade winds will return to the waters north of the
Equator, though winds will remain quite light. Very light conditions
are expected west of 30W north to 04S. East of 30W, NE trade winds
will increase with distance west.
2)    Moderate (normal) trade winds are expected north of about 08N. Winds
east of about 27W will be N/NNE.
3)    High pressure (1025mb) will be pushed south to 29N/34W by a strong
cold front moving east across the north-central Atlantic. A ridge of
high pressure will extend northeast of the high to the Azores.
4)    A trough of low pressure will move east off the Moroccan coast, with
an area of light and variable winds southwest of Portugal settled on
35N/13W. N winds will be between this light patch and the high
pressure ridge, extending south to 30N between 15W and 27W.
5)    Moderate Eíly out of the Gibraltar Strait and across the northern half
of the Gulf of Cadiz.
6)    Mainly light to moderate E/NE winds south of Spain across the Alboran
Sea and into the southwestern Med.
7)    Along the eastern coast of Spain, continued mainly light winds with
coastal overnight drainage winds interspersed with coastal afternoon
sea breezes from the S/SE. Afternoon sea breezes could reach moderate
strength near the coast in the mid-/late-afternoon.
