personal gear for offshore??
Bring ski hat, warm waterproof gloves, socks, and maybe one of those "turtle fur" mufflers. Long undies might not hurt either. In driving rain, ski or underwater goggles might be helpful if they don''t fog up. You''re heading South, but you''ll never be so cold as the first part of this trip, especially at night. We went transatlantic in June, and I was glad I had (and wore) everything I could put on to stay warm. November wil NOT be nice until you get into the Gulf Stream, possibly a few days out, depending upon your track. Being cold and miserable is no fun.
