Re: Sailing NE Florida to the Abacos

NightOwl is right! Stick close to the coast or use the waterway, Cross to the little Bahama Bank and you can sail in the dark to Great Sale Cay. Leave from W.Palm Beach for the 60nm voyage to Memory Rock. You don't want to be anywhere north of the Bahamas in poor weather, and your sail south offshore will be terrible!...Been there..done that! In a 48'boat with a 65hp engine....took forever!

When you wake-up in Great Sale Cay, its paradise!
