K1Navassa Island Update - January 27 The following update is from the Navassa Island DXpedition website - Electra is anchored on the south side of Great Inagua, 170 nautical miles north of Navassa. The weather is slowly deteriorating with winds at 15 knots (at 09:00 AM). Winds are expected to increase during the next three days to 25 - 30 knots. We will move today to find a more comfortable anchorage ahead of the stronger winds. The forecast for the period of Jan 30 - Feb 03 is not favorable. Winds in the Windward Passage (between Cuba and Haiti) are forecast to start blowing from the north-east at 20 knots on the 30th, increasing to 25 to 30 knots on the 31st. Winds will remain strong in the passage until Feb 02. Around Navassa, winds are likely to be lighter, around 15 knots, [The Daily DX] K1Navassa Island Update - January 28 Ten team members have arrived in Jamaica. Two more arrive tomorrow and work begins to process container under oversight by Jamaican officials. Tomorrow will be a work-intensive day. [DX-World]
