Commanders Concurs

Commanders' Weather, our preferred weather forecasters, has given us the green light to depart Newport, RI in the morning. Ft Lauderdale bound, they suggest this routing…

1) Recommend coming straight south out of Newport on Mon with the WSW to SW winds rather than trying to beat into them.

2) Then Mon night/early Tue as winds lighten and clock you can begin heading more SW.

3) Recommend being a little bit west of rhumb line to Cape Hatteras once you have made the turn to the SW as winds and seas will be higher further to the east of your route.

4) Then once you round Cape Hatteras suggest hugging the coast to avoid considerably rougher conditions further offshore Thu and Fri.
