    Newport-Bermuda Race - Gulfstream Info Wanted
    From: Buck Godwin
    Date: 1998 Jun 06, 06:27 GMT

    the 635 nm biennial race from Newport, Rhode Island (41d 25'N 71d
    23'W) to Bermuda (32d 26'N 64d 36'W) has been called the Navigator's
    Race.
    
    can anyone in the group recommend sources of information on the
    upcoming Newport-Bermuda race?  the classes, entrants and their
    progress are of some interest, but mostly i'd like to know where the
    gulfstream and its eddies are now and where they'll be 2 weeks from
    now, during the race.  i've done the yahoo search and come up with
    some information, mostly dated, but nothing current.
    
    online sources would be great, but also radio broadcasts about the
    position of the gulfstream and its eddies would be good.  i've been
    told that there are broadcasts during the race that give the
    coordinates of the west wall of the 'stream and the centers and
    diameters of the eddies, but i don't know the frequencies.
    
    my next question is how to use this information.  can anyone recommend
    any books, etc. about how to win this race.
    
    finally,  does anyone on this list have any personal experience with
    this race?  i'm sure we'd all like to hear about it.
    
    
    thanks,
    buck

    There's an excellent Gulf Stream resource provided by Rutgers U. Marine
    Remote Sensing Group:     http://marine.rutgers.edu/mrs/
    They convert data from the AVHRR Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer on
    NOAA's 12 & 14 Seastar satellites.  The data are calibrated to show sea
    surface temp with the graphic display in color to show the ouline of the GS
    and it's eddies.  There are 9 passes/day which gives real time(last 24 hr to
    one week historical data). They also provide satellite pass (orbit) info to
    let you know when to look for the latest data and where the birds are. A
    very useful bit of additional information are drifting buoy data which would
    provide you an indication of the speed of the current by measuring the drift
    plot over time.  Rutgers also provides info on the Marion to Bermuda race.
    
    I also suggest that you try Jennifer Clark's Gulfstream web site. Finally,
    obtain the GULF STREAM Companion by Ocean Navigator Magazine.  Happy Sailing!

    You can receive voice broadcasts about the GS from NMN (USCG, Portsmouth, VA.).
    In particular, they give you info on the "west wall" and any eddies. The GS
    info is provided at the end of the weather broadcasts which begin at 1600
    and 2200 GMT on frequencies of: 6501, 8764, and 13089kHz daily.  You need a
    SSB radio receiver to pick up "Perfect Paul"(synthesized) broadcasts. Take
    along a small portable tape recorder and record the whole session.  Then
    play back to catch the info you want.
    
    If your vessel has a HF weatherfax receiver, GS info is broadcast by NAM
    (Navy, Norfolk, VA.)daily at 0300 GMT on 3357, 8080, and 10865 kHz. It's in
    the form of a facsimile GS analysis chart.
