How we decide our directions / 方角の決め方

We still continue to sail south to find the trade winds and blocked from going west by areas of very light winds.   We hope to get to some better winds in a couple of days.   Winds so far have been light and variable ( direction and speed) making sailing challenging.  

This is a picture of our chart plotter showing our track and position.  The X’s are points noted in various weather forecasts.  As you can see , a real turn west will not begin until latitude 23 , about the same as tip of Baja.  Our final latitude heading West will probably be around 18 North.  



This is the current situation. A little hard to see???
This photo is right before the launch. You see where the chart plotter is.
