Re: advice on sailing around Cape Hatteras?

Good you arent trying Oregon anyway a trecheous inlet.

I am not a Hatterass lover and like to go outside the gulf stream, but have done the insoide route a couplke of times.

Looking for more than a 2 day window with no northerly component to the wind is the best way to go. You may also want to pull in to Cape May and wait for a similar to go the distance from Cape May to Block. Front comming through every few days this time of year. Also March is nortoriuos for noreeasterns off the Jersey coast. Stay safe. I also echo the route up the inland may be a better route.
