I appreciate the advice
and agree with most of it.
One of my worse days ever was fighting the steep waves of Long Island Sound
And I know the Baltic
can be even worse.
With strong head
winds, it's better to stay at the dock
out go a different direction.
I'm committed to a number of the cities of the Baltic
Republics for reasons that have nothing to do with cruising.
And Dockhead, your description is exactly what I'd been thinking, so I still try to maximize my time in the northern shores.
Totally agree with your best cruising grounds.
