Coastal or Bluewater...
I am interested in buying a coastal cruising sailboat in the 30-34 ft range. My intentions are exactly what the term "coastal" refers to. I also hope to sail across the Cabot Straight, from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to NFLD (90 miles of open water).
My question(s); When does coastal cruising stop and bluewater sailing begin. Is a coastal cruiser such as the Oday 34 or Pearson 323 suited to an open water sail such as this, or maybe even farther,for example, southern Iceland.
