A great read on 500Mb weather maps.

Re: Sailing outside on the East Coast

Thank you very much for all the advice. I hope to come out the New York harbor about Oct 10th. I need to stay attached to the east coast till after Thanksgiving. I want to get as far down as I can by the end of Oct. I will keep a weather eye and be on the conservative side. I do have an advantage being 56,000 lbs and able to motor 7knots for 2000 mi. I am grateful for all your experience and I hope I can share mine in the future.

A different tack. Since you are going to take the stick down anyway - I presume you are not going out by way of Nova Scotia - if you are you would never want to come back west to Florida - just leave it down until you get to Beaufort, NC. The two days down the New Jersey coast could get a little rocky - then you would have three days inside in the ICW.. You could limit the Jersey Shore to one day by using the & D canal but that involves adding an extra 100 miles to the trip.
