Re: Thorny Path

While prep and crew requirements are different, I think if you're going to the Caribbean, it makes as much sense to just point go. Get on the other side of the Gulf Steam as soon as practical. Offshore for two weeks, plenty of spare fuel lashed to the decks and pick as good a weather window as possible.

The average trip from RI to BVI is 12-14 days. I know its been done in 9, but stories from that trip did not sound relaxing. Sailed through 50+ knots for three days.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
