Re: East Coast sailing North
I did a 24/7 inside trip on a 72' shrimp trawler and running the ditch at night is not something one should contemplate lightly.
You are right to be concerned about northerlies in the Gulfstream but, if you watch the weather closely and go inside on bad weather days, you should be OK. If you decide on daylight runs inside it will about double the time you expect the trip should take.
