Re: Sailing NE Florida to the Abacos

Malyea there is nothing wrong with just going sailing and seeing what happens...Often you have to sail towards Bermuda on the starboard tack as the port tack tack puts you into the stream going nowhere. But if you get westerlies or southerlies you will be there in 2-3 days.

The two dangers are north winds into the Gulf Stream and a rage when you get to the Abacos and don't do it in hurricane season. The only real danger is trying to do the trip to a schedule.

Have fun.
