Anyone done this trip

I haven''t made the trip, but have a number of friends who have. It''s best to make your first crossing in a group, preferably led by someone who has done it before. Participants on the Trailer Sailor forum ( occasionally organize fleet cruises for small, trailerable sailboats. The key is to wait until the weather is right, and then make a fast crossing before the weather can change on you. If the wind is too light to allow you to maintain a reasonable speed under sail, use your motor. If you plan it right, I''m told it''s a nice, fast, fair-weather sail.
