This is my plan for tomorrow but this is our first Gulf Stream
crossing so your input is very welcome.
We are planning on leaving Lake Worth
Inlet/ Palm Beach Thursday at 7am and traveling due on a due east heading at 6-7 knots until we clear the Gulf Stream
. I expect to be pushed about 16 miles north off my heading.
Once clear of the GS I plan to head
south/ southwest towards Great Harbor. I will slow the boat
to ensure we do not cross the shelf to shallow waters until day break. Then we will finish the last 14 miles across the bank to Great Harbor.
Boat= Lagoon 440
Travel time - 26 hours
- light and varied for the GS crossing then 9-14 knots on the nose.
Waves 1-2 ft on the nose, 7-4 second periods
