Issuma has reached Isla Mechuque in southern Chile. At 42S and 73W it is due south of New York and nearly the same distance from the equator, but at GMT -4 it is an hour ahead of New York which is 40.7N 73.9W! Climatologically it's similar to New York- as you can see from the vegetation.
But the austral winter is approaching, rather like Irish winter now - 40's, windy and rainy.

Wisdom was pointing toward heading out to sea and heaving to for a day or two when the forecast gale dropped dramatically.
