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

Unless you time your exit at the race at slack, ( there always seems to be current) going out, and coming back..could be painfully slow.
Most of us probably try to ride the currents out; once out, turning around and coming back you could find yourself doing less than 2 kn over ground...against a stiff current
