Re: Help With Offshore Navigation

I think it is awsome that you are planning a sailing ADVENTURE in the Atlantic Ocean (sailing against the Gulf Stream) and even talk about a weather window, but there is a slight chance that you may only see water at one point (and the sun if you are lucky), so it is probably a good idea to know your position. What if you get caught in a nasty northerly during your weather window and need to tell the coast guard where you are in order for them to rescue you? Better make sure you know your exact position!
