St. Johns to Azores-Atlantic crossing

Emily, I know this isn''t exactly what you were asking for but, where I you and looking for others planning an August crossing, I''d start asking that question on the morning Net before/after the Safety & Security Net and before David Jones starts his drone about the wx. There''s a huge crowd listening in and I''d bet those who are considering a crossing would be included.

Excuse me for saying this but are you really thinking of departing the Virgins in August, right as the storm season kicks into active mode? I''m sure there are schedule considerations that shape this for you, but wouldn''t June be a much better month to depart? You''d even stand a chance at the festival in Horta at month''s end.

Jack
