Re: Miami to New York 7/19/2019
Those are huge jumps if you do not plan to any night sailing. Also you are now in Hurricane and thunderstorm season so you will need to pay close attention to the weather. Looking at your itinerary, my sense is that you would be hard pressed to travel more than 100 miles a day if you are only traveling in day light. Six foot draft will limit some of the inlets that you might otherwise use to break up the trip. But taking your description at face value, you probably will need to travel at night if you actually do the Jacksonville or Saint Augustine's to Savannah or Hilton head as a single leg since that is roughly 150-180 nm but more realistically that is probably two legs. Hilton Head to Beaufort, N.C. is roughly 300 miles and so would more realistically be 3 or 4 days if you don't travel at night. On the other hand, Miami to Beaufort, N.C. can be done in 4 days as a single round the clock offshore leap.
