Preparing to Sail from SriLanka to Chagos in the worst of weather, flat calm and a major storm. Predicting the weather with Predictwind Weather on the Iridium GO was excellent, but rough seas and dead calms were both unavoidable. Patrick talks about fuel management for such wind and waves, what he does to the anchor chain prior to departure, why he pumps up the Dinghy very well before every Ocean passage, and then gives a quick tour of the Chart Table and our marine electronics. Getting weather at sea with Predictwind and the Iridium GO, keeping the water out of the boat, and what sails to use for the particular offshore passage Depending on the expected wind forecasts.
