Hi Wool,
The Bermuda crossing can be quite rough. I've only had three days when I fervently wished I had never set foot on a boat and the worst one was on the way back from Bermuda to RI. After a night of 55 - 75 knot winds the wind "dropped" to 45 and shifted 120 degrees. We were getting slammed around in the boat (an Island Packet 38) in a wicked cross-sea of 15' to 20'ers. We were all bruised and sick, but there was never a question of the boat being able to hold up.

Best of luck, and keep on sailing!

Jeff
