I am planning a passage
plan on paper charts
first before I resort to the luxuries of technology and will have a proof reviewer of the plan when its completed, just to have a back up. Can I please ask anyone to contribute on your thoughts and experiences please on a passage
or the East Coast
in October? I know the season is May-Oct but observing the Pilot Charts
, I see Oct being favorable with not much high waves and non existent cyclones. Wind
averages 3-4 above 40 degree - not sure about the transition zone on latitude 30s between the trades and westerlies....Temperatures look fantastic with a stable High pressure.
The winds predominantly looks like tacking all the way up and the currents are against you all the way in all the charts from May to Oct.
My latitudes concerned will between 35 to 16 degrees.
Any other suggestions are welcome. Very grateful, thanks.
I will also be solo sailing for the first time on this passage
