Re: Sail From Nova Scotia To The Bahamas

Smotzy,


I left Halifax last Oct. 12 and 16 days later arrived in Ft. Lauderdale. It was aboard my Downeast 32. There was only a crew of two, but we managed just fine. Not the easiest of trips as noted in the other comments warning against the stream. We went south and cut the stream closer to NS, then fought it a few more times working south. All in all it was an amazing experience. I would absolutely recommend it to experienced sailors.
