Re: Baby step in the ocean
Be very certain that you have a good weather window, and be prepared to wait as long as necessary to get one.
I'm involved with a historic 30 foot ketch (VFP Golden Rule) that makes use of a high
quality weather routing service to wait for windows when it is safe to sail.
This is what happens often to boats that do not do this . .
(we were waiting in Eureka for a window when this much bigger
vessel got in trouble)
