Leaving the Chesapeake Bay for Ft Lauderdale!
20 May 2015 | North Atlantic Ocean
Russ and Laurie
We decided to leave today, given the pinch between the ""impulse" coming off of Hatteras on Monday, which seems to have moved later and more north, and the long range indication of poor weather off the Florida coast in 7 days. We believe the safest route is to motor around Hatteras in light wind before the Impulse, put up with wind on the nose for 5-6hrs, then be able to sail in light wind, arriving in Ft Lauderdale on the 5th or 6th. We'll see how it goes! Sandra and Stuart have joined Antoine and us, so we'll be on our way before noon. Will keep you updated!
