You are taliking about northbound?

Well the wind is up your bum (in a number of ways )so the gulf stream wont be rough. You will have one fast trip.

The wind is far more than I like. Even if its from astern.


Now, if you mean you are heading southbound around the you'd be nuts stark raving bonkers. I dont plug into a forceast 35 knot winds.

Re: What would you do you are off Hatteras ?

Yes, we are heading north. Leaving FLL this Friday to Annapolis. I am thinking of just flying a tiny staysail. However, according to the weather, we do have a brief period of time that we will have some northern component of wind (less than 4 hours), we can sail east to gain some more sea room.

We have SSB and modem to get weather fax, etc. so we can make our decision as we approach NC. We can make a left if we have to.

What will it be like in 2 days when you are there? Today's conditions don't mean much. You're on a 59 footer? Working jib should be fine.

You wont need SSB as you will be inside the gulfstream, so you will have VHF weather.

Yeah, I would be going jib only, maybe poled out if its that far behind, but only a small snippet of sail.

Opt out point of Beaufort NC.

But asy you say, if its predicted for a weeks time whats the chances.... Nil.

Re: What would you do you are off Hatteras ?

I would be thinking twice about being in that. I'd be looking at a number of different forecasts, surface and 500mb charts, etc. not just a Passage Weather map. Look out ahead a few days. I'd be thinking ICW at Beaufort or sooner if it looked like getting beat up. It's a big boat but do you know what it can do?

Keep checking the weather as you get closer. If it is a big capable boat there should not be a problem going northbound in those winds.

Back to Grenada in early December. Not sure I will remember how to sail. Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.

I will. If system swings to any north wind we will duck in Wilmington. I am not quite sure if we should wait until we get to Beaufort, NC as Mark suggested. I will study the charts carefully.

Thanks.

This area is not called the Graveyard of The Atlantic for nothing. If I had even a slight HINT of wind going north or east I would go inside.
