Re: scheduled Gulf Stream crossings?

I agree with orthomartin. The days and weeks people wait are for a forecast with nary a puff of wind and then motor across.

North wind up to 10 - 15 kts gets bumpy but not untenable. A sustained howler from the North is really unpleasant and might lead to damage with an inexperienced crew.

sail fast and eat well, dave
