Re: Best months for coastal hop up East Coast

BUMP!

Well, I ended up sailing to and from Cape May, N.J., due to lack of time in my schedule. I sailed solo down to Cape Charles and up the coast to Cape May. My wife and son drove up there to spend 4 days on the boat.

It was a great trip, although the offshore portions were challenging due to lack of sleep and the need to keep watch. The best preparation I made was the addition of a symmetrical spinnaker set up - I spent most of my time sailing running or reaching before the wind. I posted some videos on YouTube at jameswilson29
