Thank you Both.

I don't get used to reading the off shore marine forecast. It is comfortable to reconfirm my thinking. In the past two weeks the wind was always coming from SW. Looks like is changing. Althought I will see what happen in Oct 21. One can only hope.

BTW, anyone know where is

1. HUDSON CANYON, BALTIMORE CANYON and HATTERAS CANYON

just give me a rough number of nm off any parallel Thanks.

Hudson Canyon is basically an extension of the Hudson River... and looks like this:



As for a description of the three... see HERE.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Great Site Dog,

RockDAWG,

I plotted your course when you posted the weather. Your course should take you as close as 7 miles west of the end of the Hudson canyon. Look for the Fishing fleet.

N39 31.176 W72 22.236 Here's a set of coordinates for the Hudson canyon.

N38 11.379 W73 46.781 Baltimore Canyon approx 71 miles 128 deg mag from cape may light...25 miles east of your track .

Clearly the canyons are not one set of coordinates...but hopefully these will help you find it on a chart

Hahah.... Many thanks. I will use your coordinates as a starting point to check my plotting skills. I wonder if I can buy a few Haddock from the fisherman.

SailingDog, that is a great link. Thanks.

Hello to all coastal and off shore captains:

Leaving at Hyannis Port for Norfolk this Thursday is still our plan. We prefer a straight shot to Norfolk without going through LI Sound. With your experience and resource at your desk, what do you think in term of weather. Any strategy you may offer. I'd like to hear your option and reasoning.

S/V: Well founded Tartan 38 with storm sails and spinnaker, life raft, but no radar
Captain: Has done this for a dozen times in the past
Me and One other: Comfortable in the ocean.
Total: Three of us.

I am looking forward to this. I hope we will go thru rough seas for days and arrive safely. I will pre-medicate myself for motion sickness and carry suppository and injectable for motion sickness just in case.

Might be a bit lumpy... the seas (3-6') on Friday will be out of the west and so will the winds (20-25 knots) and you'll be sailing a close reach most likely. This is based on the current set of images from PassageWeather.com.

SD,

Just wonder where did you get the 6 to 9' wave reading? Do you use GFS or NAM?

I am just starting to learn how to read the weather chart, so I may miss some important info there.

We should be OK with close reach. I remember I was told that he has a boom preventer set up on the boat already.

Thanks.

One more thing on the PassageWeather.com

When it states "009 UTC", it means (9-5) = 4 am EST, right? Just wanted to make sure.

My bad, it's 3-6'.... I just re-checked the images... had the wrong one in the browser... posted the right ones above.

As for a preventer...really not necessary sailing UPWIND.

And as for UTC, yes, 0900 UTC = 0400 EST.
