Looking for crew for Florida to Texas trip.
Are you planning to go offshore or in the Ditch? If you''re going offshore, you''ll need to stay about 100 to 150 miles offshore until you clear the oil and gas rigs around LA. Suggest that you don''t wait too long into hurricane season to start the trip - or if you do leave later, you might want to take the ditch.
I single handed the Regatta de Amigos from Galveston to Veracruz, Mexico last June. Lots of oil and gas rigs out to about 150 miles. Tough to sleep if you''re single-handing. No hurricanes, but several thunderstorms on the way down with gale force winds. Only half of the fleet managed to complete the regatta.
