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

Would you settle for harbor seals? These critters were in Fishers Island Sound (eastern extension of Long Island Sound) in November several years ago. They are annual visitors in large numbers here and usually start showing up in October.
