And again, we like to think we know what we're doing!!
There will be almost no contrary current on the line we are taking from nj to the cape.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

On Black Diamond's own blog Ed says: "We anticipate 6-8 days at sea, non-stop."
of course he also mentions a five day trip, but waiting at Cape May for a couple of days for a weather window, or adding a couple of days if someone wants to stay closer inshore running down the Florida coast.

Five "days", roughly 120 hours, for a trip from NYC to southern Florida, roughly 1100 miles assuming you're not tacking all the way (which could make that into 1500 sea miles very quickly)...You need a reasonably BIG fast boat to maintain nine knots or so, all the way, day and night, for five days.

Which could be why he's planned for seven days, plus or minus one.

A trip that fast doesn't give a man proper time to get his scrimshaw finished, does it? That hardly seems right.

I am confused.

You are provisioning for 90 days X 3 people X 3 meals. That is 810 servings. In all likelihood, you will not use most of it. How are you provisioning? Yes I know often one foes not eat 3 meals, but you still have to get the calories into the body.

Our bilge is full of canned foods. On top of that is 50# or so of rice, suplies to make about 30 loaves of bread.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

As a bit of an outlier..did a trip from NYC to So FL years ago with some buddies on a 37' O'Day and it took us 2 months to make it down! Granted that we left in Dec and didn't know what we were doing...

But I would think a month should certainly be sufficient

That singular line proves just about everyone's point....

Unless you sail to a point south of Miami east of the Bahamas (or through them)...you will have contrary current at some point.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

here's your quote...

"i have heard there is some place in the Carolinas that you should take the ICW because the ocean in that area is crazy, where is that? "

that equally proves just about everyone else's points....

If they agree with the 5 day estimate and no contrary current then they haven't done th trip before...

If they don't agree with your 5 day estimate..then they can tell you about the scary places in NC....

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

We will be checking the weather before the cape, and decide before we arrive.
I have a currents chart for the atlantic. I can tell you we have none by looking at that.

Re: Transit time? NY-FL

OK, I am confused. You state you are going with two Canadians that have done the trip before. You also state that your crew "member" knows the timing. So, are the Canadians on your boat or are you three boats heading south with seperate crews?

If they are in their own boats, and are experienced crews and know how to sail, how are you going to keep with them?
Whatever, good luck~
