Re: February Miami-Tortola Sail---Wind/Weather?
Chances are you're gonna have a lot of sailing upwind...
The best strategy might be that which Don Street has long advocated in the winter... Ride the backside of the passage of a cold front out of the NE Providence Channel, try to make as much easting as you can... If you've had some fast sailing, by the time the trades re-establish, you should be able to fetch Tortola if you're lucky...
Hope you're sailing a boat that likes to go to weather... :-)
