I moved from New England
to North Carolina
for the winter/spring and was planning to sail down and then enjoy the long sailing season here. But first my crew backed out, I got the flu, decided to sail solo and the day I was to leave Sandy started heading north. After Sandy I couldn't imagine trying to duck into NJ shore if needed - eg Sandy Hook...-- as they were a wreck. It was getting to be Nov. and I had to move. So I left my boat in CT
Here I am in Beaufort
NC, the weather
is beautiful and my boat is sitting in CT...
So I am wondering if anyone has ever sailed south in the middle of the winter. I have this crazy idea that if I can see a window of relatively warm (for winter) days... But of course it's winter and storms come fast...
Anyone done this? Can you offer experience? Is it crazy to be even thinking about doing it? Should I just resign myself..,?
(No I can't afford to have it trailered down....)
