Heading South - departure time?
Been a long time sponge on this site and learned a lot over the years most recently with the tutorial on how to bed deck fittings (particularly for the mechanically challenged). Making plans for my first long cruise going from Oyster bay to Hilton head this Fall From those of you who have made this trip any insights on the best time of the season to start heading south? Not sure whether I will be going outside or taking the ICW - will depend on which of my sailing buddies will be making all or part of the trip. Realizing I need to be mindful of weather windows and my hope of arriving in HH around Oct 20 suspect the departure time should be last week in Sept. Thoughts?
