I am not familiar with the N.E. area for sailing. Are there times when you can get outside, and do some 24- 36 hr sails
? I have done the ICW
from Ft. Lauderdale to Jacksonville
. Never in one shot, but in parts
. I would rather get outside, and do some coldweather sailing to get south. Plus I personally prefer not to have to watch for markers, wait on bridges, and get huge waves from inconsiderate powerboaters.
Here's a pic from 2 years ago with Daytona in the sunset. With the wind
it was in the 20's blowing around 30knts
