The time between jobs is a great chance for a long adventure. In the fall of 2021 I set out from NYC on my sailboat bound for warmer climates. I had done a bit of research into route planning and passages by chatting with friends and finding other blogs similar to this one. In this post I’ll detail the route I took and interesting points of note from along the way.

I waited a while to make this post so I don’t remember much from the voyage but here is a summary video I made and the following sailing segments:
