Chesapeake to Bermuda - share your wisdom
I am back for another year of armchair sailing on Sailnet
I will be crewing in a Bristol SV to Bermuda the end of May. This is a round trip voyage. For those who have experience making this trip, please share with us your do's and don'ts particular in picking the weather window, route, strategy to making a smooth safe passage. If you have links regarding the thought process of making such trip, please post them.
I beleive that we have a safe vessel and many backup system to ensure crew safety.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
