We departed from Newport, RI and sailed almost a straight line to San Juan beginning October 31 and arriving November 9th. No wind above 20 knots, no waves/swells above 4ft and absolutely no rain, not even a single thunderstorm. We heard quite a few Salty Dawgs on the VHF radio along the way. Picking a good weather window is key, nobody can tell you when it’s okay to go, not even a weather service. The decision needs to be yours alone.
