Jimmy Cornell / World Cruising Routes . Route
AN105 Page 82 . Winds and currents page 17 and 38 . Passage weather
North Atlantic .
Everyone talks about traditional to Bermuda Azores route
and complains about the variables and being becalmed or go north to get the westerlies and complain unsettled weather
and the roaring forties storms.
Jimmy Cornell's route AN105 seems sensible has anyone done it? Is there any reason why one should not tack prior the the variables and keep in the great trade
sailing winds and weather
, if you view Passage
weather you can see the dulldrums of the variables the nasties of the westerlies and constant nice winds of the trades all be it against you! (I would prefere tacking the trades than battling the roaring forties providing they are tackable) again has anyone any experience to pass on?
