The craziest thing happened today. we could see a high pressure zone up in the sky, there was a perfect circle of clouds with blue skies in the middle. Shaped exactly like the isobars, I just hope it shows up in pictures. I had this deep dread in my stomach that the wind would stop exactly as we entered the zone. While on the edge you could see blue water to starboard, gray water to port...and we waited and waited and waited and the wind picked up. This is tradewinds sailing people!
This happened at N 30 49.005' W 136 41.947'
