Re: scheduled Gulf Stream crossings?

As others have said the danger is a bit overstated. Back in 2005 I kite boarded to Bimini in a race. We specifically waited for a North wind of around 17 knots as it was needed for the kites to have any decent power. The smallest support boats were 30 foot center consoles and they did just fine. Before anyone says it was reckless we had a lot of boats some quite large and others quite fast, our own helicopter and a NOAA meteorologist advising us.
