Re: Too Much Sailing for a 9 day trip?

Thanks for the great advice.
My family has sailed all day on 4-5 hour legs before but never for as many consecutive days. In fact, never more than two.
Great advise about adding in flexibility for weather...would hate to hole up for a few days up north only to have to sail 12 hours to hurry and get home....yuk!
I think we will just play it by ear after we clear customs....if its too much sailing we could just head back to Roche/Juans (which was our initial plan....my wife said "we will be sooo close we have to just duck our heads into Canada").
