St Thomas to Hilton Head Passage Planning
I'll be crewing on a Frers 41 leaving St Thomas on/about June 10th bound for Hilton Head.
Planned route is offshore, straight line direct bypassing the Bahamas to the northeast (ie leaving them to port). 1300 nm of ocean passage at an average of 160 nm each 24 hours so 9 days or so on passage.
Other than the possible issue of it being early hurricane season, what specific and general weather pattern and passage considerations would be important to this specific route?
