|Subject: Re: Atlantic crossing|
I've crossed the Atlantic a few times - both eastbound and westbound. I have sailed out of New York to Southhampton in late September - bearing in mind this is the NORTH Atlantic route - just had one choppy day. That is the worst I've ever experienced on any crossing. The voyage from Lisbon is the southerly route probably calling at the Canaries, the Azores and then crossing the pond. Coincidentally, I'm planning to sail from Lisbon to St. Maarten in November!
