Doh. 2-3 meter waves and stronger winds if they head out to sea further to avoid Ophelia. That’s going to make all those army boys really pleasant. ;) Hope they stocked up on Gravol before they left.
If they head farther east to avoid it, I wonder how much longer they will be at sea because of it. 360 to 480 km further east sounds like a fair distance to travel but maybe it’s not too bad if they start early enough. Hmm, if I could remember anything from high school geometry I could probably figure it all out. ;)
