The stream crossing is, of course, the most critical…. and your information has been enormously helpful. We have had remarkable experiences that prove that. (On one)… we were running north on Egraine and crossed a 65 foot boat on the rhumb line. He was chatty and assumed we would be left in his wake, given his longer waterline and more powerful rig. For three days, following your chart, we zig zagged and crossed him several times, eventually popping up in front him by several miles. By the end of the third day he wouldn’t answer our hails and didn’t want to talk to us.
