This is worth noting for a couple reasons.
First it might be our first real check of these current predictions, and second, it could be a very nice ride for the rowers. The red parts in the GE picture are 4 to 5 kts, so keep tuned in. Thursday is the big day.
The pictures below are the RTOFS predictions initialized 00z on Feb 5, valid for 00z on Feb 7 .
Note that the rowers have to hold the excellent course they have been making. If they fall off to 275 T they will miss the big red bus.
If they do hit the current it looks to be SW, but if they keep rowing 2+ kt to 300 T or so, they will make great progress to the west, and maybe even get to ride it up the other side.
