Seminar Topic:

The Gulf Stream should be respected but not feared. Andy will discuss weather window & routing considerations & preparation for passages south. He’ll share tips & tools from personal experience & as event manager for the Caribbean 1500, where making the call on departure day was crucial to a successful rally. The talk will focus most on offshore passages from the Chesapeake to Bermuda/Caribbean, but will also briefly touch on the crossing from Florida to the Bahamas.
