Just curious why Oct?????
That is the height of hurricane
season. Seems pretty risky to me.
BTW....sailing "with" another vessel seldom works out. I would recommend finding a net to check-in with.
No 2 vessels sail at the same speed. Even staying within VHF
range can be difficult. Even if you did, you would be constantly looking over your shoulder.
