#190: Crossing the Atlantic is at the top of my mind at the moment - by the time you hear this, we’ll be at-sea, en route to Bermuda, the first leg of what will be my 3rd, Mia’s 4th trans-Atlantic passage. I recorded this seminar about our two previous trans-Atlantic experiences the Toronto Boat Show in 2016. Mia & I discuss weather routing, seasonal route options and best practices, and call on our friends David & Isabelle, who completed an Atlantic Circle on their Hunter 42 ‘Morning Haze’. To follow along with the slides, go to the show notes page at 59-north.com/podcast.

Ask us Anything! If you’ve been curious about something I haven’t covered on the show, or just want to know what our favorite food is, send your questions to mia@59-north.com. If you want to get on the show itself, leave us a voicemail on 443-440-5411 - we’ll play the recording back, and answer your question!
