Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Going North in December
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Hi Chuck and Kim,
This is an easy trip which I have done several times, and all it requires is a little patience. You have excellent weather forecast in your part of the world, and you only need to wait until you get a good couple day forecast with winds not out of the north. It may take a week or more that time of the year to get the right weather, so don't rush it.
I recommend you do the trip non stop in order to use the gulf stream to your advantage. Leave Ft Lauderdale in the morning, head straight into the stream, and ride it north until about abeam St Augustine. You will be a little over 50 miles offshore at that point, and you should now set your course straight to Brunswick, which will quickly take you out of the steam. If anything, you may have to slow a bit to arrive in daylight on morning 3. Don't forget to have your fishing gear ready, as its good fishing in the stream.
Santa Marta, Columbia
