How far offshore do wind turbines go?

    Many professionals are still discussing this question.  At present, Cape Wind, America’s first “wind farm” planned for Nantucket Sound, plans to place wind-turbines 13.8 miles from the town of Nantucket (which is only 5.2 miles from the Point Gammon, a private island).   According to wikipedia “offshore wind development zones are generally considered to be ten kilometers or more from land” (see URL below). The largest offshore “wind park” is Horns Rev, or Horns Reef, about 10-20 miles from the western most point of Denmark.
