Advice Need on the Gulf Stream

Here’s another opportunity for cruisers to help a fellow cruiser. Joe will thank you!

Larry,
I’m about to take my first offshore trip from WPB, Fl to Oriental, NC and could use some pointers on taking advantage of Gulf Stream currents.

I’m sailing a 31 ft Prout Quest catamaran with a 15hp yanmar diesel that gets 5.5 knots max speed if needed. The rhumb line takes us far offshore and I anticipate crew of 3 will be more than a days journey back inside should weather deteriorate so will be using a shore based WX service and Delorme explorer for communication.
