caribbean cruising routes

bering in mind you have constant winds out of the east or south east, the trades and not being specific about what part of the carribian you wish you cruise, use steets guides, there are three and reeds carribian conbineing that with gentlemans passages south and assorted cruising guides you should have a good time, having done shuch for 18 yrs this will start you untill you can write your own pilot. if you can make enough easting out bermuda you can make barbados and work north not a lot of good anchorages there but kind of makes the trip easier, although it is not always possible to get that much easting i have only made it 3 times in 18 yrs, so settle for the leewards, most common antigua, but farther south landings in the windwards are possible if you can get the eastings out of bermuda, leaveing my self late this year, in february.

good luck
