Screen shots of 1st Day’s Progress

Tag: route,trips,victoriesJonathon Haradon @ 6:50 pm

Jonathon here.  I thought I would post a couple of screen shots of Matt and Karen’s progress.  I know a lot of you have clicked through to the marinetraffic.com website with AIS tracking to try and find Syzygy.  Like Matt has said, if they aren’t in AIS range, you won’t see them.  But here’s two pictures of where they have been.

The first is from when they departed until I went to bed around midnight California time.  They had been sailing about 13 hours at that point.

The second is a somewhat overlapping track of their progress until about 6 am Thursday morning when they dropped off the map.  At this point they had gone about 110 miles in about 18 hours.  If they keep going through Thursday night they might be in the Santa Barbara/Los Angeles area Friday during the day sometime.  I imagine they will keep pushing through since wind and wave height seem to indicate good weather all the way down the California coast and Baja Mexico for at least the next 7 days. There are a number of AIS stations in Los Angeles and San Diego areas, so they might pop back up!

    Gary, I click on the ‘via marinetraffic.com’ link on the right side of our website. If Syzygy is in range of an AIS land station, and they Syzygy has it’s AIS turned on, then it should go directly to a map with the boat in the center.
    If it doesn’t, you can also try the following:
    At marinetraffic.com, click on the Vessels tab at the top of the page. You then Must click on the sub tab: ‘search all’ which is just under the ‘Vessels’ tab. Type in Syzygy into the boat search on the left hand side of the screen. It should find our boat. Click on Syzygy. It should bring up a bunch of information on our boat, including the ‘Last Position Received’. Under that heading, it will say how long ago the last position received was. If you then click on the latitude/longitude, it will show you where that last position was, and their path for the last 24 hours. Hope that helps. If I see them pop back up, I’ll shoot you a text, but I’m traveling to Raleigh to see my sister and niece, so won’t be plugged in for much of the next four days.
