The weather here on Chagos is affected by the ITCZ,(Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), known by sailors as The Doldrums) often 60% cloud cover with passing squalls.  There is steady 10 to 15 knot wind out of the SW to WSW that helps cool things off.  There are seven or eight islands that make up the atoll and we have currently walked around three of them.  We do another tomorrow.  The atoll is about 5k+ across.  I have yet to catch a fish but working on it.  Barry
