Hey Ray, I hope to do the Rota (and Fisherman's) this mid October to mid Nov this fall. I too want to go south to north also. Was wondering if you had words of wisdom. I would be interested to know how the prevailing winds were (are). Would hate to have to fight the wind the whole way lol. Tried a search but your tips seem to be buried in other discussions lol. Help? Thanks. I am also a Ray too.
