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 (trailersailor.com) 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.
