Do you best guess of your passage
time...remember 1000 miles per week...then add an extra week. If you arrive in good time, you get a few days to enjoy the destination
. Nothing worse than everyone rushing to the airport
the minute you arrive. It will be great to enjoy your arrival, and your new port with your crew/friends. As a bonus, you can do a big cleanup of the boat, and repairs
. After a long passage
, the boat will certainly need both...why not keep your crew around for that!
Also, since you mention its an atlantic crossing
, so likely you will go pre-xmas, as many boats do....plan to fly on Dec 24 or Dec 25...these are the cheapest days of the entire year to fly. I flew from Antigua
to Toronto on Dec 24 for a crazy low fare. This might actually solve both your questions!!!
