Re: Sailing outside on the East Coast

If there is a northerly component to the wind, the gulf stream can get really sharp off FL. If you have a good weather window, I sort of agree with Auspicious, east early, cross above and make the dash.
Qualification: have not rounded Hatteras, just know it can be adventuresome, so take this for what it's worth!
