ESTAR, am making the journey from Norfolk direct to Newport this summer so I have had this thread on my review list...I have a couple of guys with lots of blue water deliveries going with me but looking at:

1. EPIRB registered - with active float plan

2. What to float in when the boat doesnt

3. Seasickness - shots, suppositories

4. Sails to support conditions and shape

5. Weather window


As i told someone once - and given Anzasari's recent problems - you never beat the sea, the best you can do is break even, but the sea always wins...
