Well, I liked the first bit. that can be great; until someone in a 50 ft trawler pulls into the anchorage at 6PM and fires up the generator they will leave running all night, or a bunch of kids who love Hip Hop, have a powerful amplifier and have decided to party 'til dawn.It's hard to beat getting up from a sound sleep in a quiet secure anchorage with no schedule. Having a leisurely breakfast. Raising the anchor mid morning. Sailing to your next destination and arriving around 4PM. Getting settled, having your sundowners (hang the grill first), grilling up some nice dinner while the sun sets, and having dinner on deck.
Offshore sailing is just a way to get to a place where you can do some coastal cruising. It's not harder, easier, higher skill, lower skill, or anything like that...just not as much fun IMHO.
Very possible! I should have put in a disclaimer that my only offshore experience has been on deliveries, never cruising my own boat, so that might change things somewhat.Really? I think you must be doing it wrong
