Cape Hatteras, one of the three Graveyards of the Atlantic, is a nasty bit of sailing, and best to be avoided if at all possible. It can be easily avoided by going inside at Beaufort, NC and then taking the iCW north to Norfolk, VA.
The mate did not use her veto, and I have responded to Jim via email. John, could you please elaborate on your comment about the Cape, for someone unfamiliar with it?
thanks in advance,
