Re: Maine and North

I am on my boat now and so blessed with lots of spare time

The route from NYC to the entrance of hudso straight is 1900 NM My boat will cruise at 8 knots. So 2 weeks should do it...

I think I could settle for fur seals though.

The real question is weather. I dont mind cold but high wind and big waves and ice might be an issue.

Any ideas how long the suitable weather window is ? From when until when?

I did sail from Newport RI to the USVI this Febuary, we had 55 knot winds and 20 ft waves for a day or 2 . The distance is about 1300 NM and we did it in 9 days.

keep the info coming, and thanks for all the info. I will start reasing all the books when I get back from the USVI

Andreas
