Am planning to depart Charleston, SC, for St. Thomas mid-November. Would appreciate any recent experience on winds and currents - where is best to turn south to avoid doldrums and not have to beat our way there. Am in a 45'' Hylas. Eric

Go east, young man. Some have said it might even be easier to fetch Bermuda first....

Many do fetch Burmuda first - there they have fuel and water and showers and hot food and good ale. But what for the one who designs to get on to STT - canst he not turn south at some point before the pink sand and hail STT sooner? Eric
