Sailing Around The World

Weathering the Schedule

Our plan was to leave today but Mother Nature has a different plan. The NOAA weather prediction show a 30 to 60 knot wind that will be in our face starting this evening and the bulk of the wind Wednesday. Our plan is to leave tomorrow Wednesday and work our way down the Chesapeake over the course of 2 days and we should be on the Atlantic Ocean with 25 to 30 knots of wind at our back. That should sling shot us across the gulf stream and then down to the Islands. Hopefully this delay will give us time to finish up all those little projects and do a few small sails to tune the rig and work with Paul. I will post the moment we leave.

  1. Go luck guys. Tried to post this earlier so it may be a duplication. We wondered how the new storm might change you departure plans. Sounds like you can catch the back side of the low and have a good start.
