Re: Hurricane leslie coming north, need I be concerned?

Crew is one German who has sailed in the Baltic sea quite a bit, two relatively new sailors, and myself. I practice heaving to regularly, read a lot and race a lot but like some here know I want to build offshore experience. I've trimmed a kite in 20 knots windassuring down 4' swells on a 25' keelboat during a 25 mile distance race, and I've been out in some minor squalls off coney island with the current ripping against 25 knot southerly winds, but never had green water over the deck. So I'm looking to slowly up the ante, but I agree that the sound is the way to go this time
