gulf stream avoidance

  1. South from Beaufort NC to Fla

    Seamanship & Navigation
    Although we have logged 12,000 nm of offshore sailing, we have no experience going south along the US east coast. We wish to sail from Beaufort NC to Charleston, giving Cape Fear a 15 mile (?) pass and then on to Jacksonville. Does anyone have any comments or advice about avoiding the Gulf Stream.
