Sure looks that way, must not have a westerly wind right now. I'm hoping they head west soon as I will be in the Turks early December and hope to see them come in.saltire wrote:You can track the riders live progress here , think they might be heading for a sesh in Capetown first !
The cat has to go faster than that or they would never catch the kiters. One reason why they probably choose a cat as opposed to a mono hull.edt wrote:as far as I can tell the 50 foot cat they chartered averages around 6-10 knots in what looks to be pretty moderate westerly wind about 15 knots, while the kites are able to go 20. they should be able to make their schedule but man I don't think I am so jealous of them any more it's gonna be a hell of a slog. I think they had to head south to pick up a more westerly wind so the chase boat could go faster, not for the kites.
