Sailing to Cuba from Halifax, Nova Scotia

Hi,

Just wondering about sailing from Halifax Nova Scotia in November to Cuba. I'll be sailing a Contessa 26. Will it be a painful slog -- ie. working against current and winds? Suggestions?

I'm aware of the risks (end of hurricane season/start of possible winter storms) Just wanted to know if anyone else have sailed along the eastern seaboard to the caribbean?

Re: Sailing to Cuba from Halifax, Nova Scotia

Wow thats quite an undertaking for that time of year.
Are you planning a somewhat coastal route or all offshore?
Late middle or early November as a starting date?
Also how much time do you have?
Maybe if you tell us a little bit about yourself we could give you some pointers such as how much experience you have would be a start.
I do wish you safe travels.
