Re: Need advice-Puerto Rico to Galveston in May

For what its worth, the southern route will be down current and down wind and afford you the opportunity to make a number of R&R stops along the way--DR, Jamaica, the Caymen's, and Isla for R&R along the way. The run from Isla to Galveston is again favored for both wind and current. It might be wise for you to study the Pilot Charts for the time period. If your yacht is equipped for the trip, I think you'd find the southern route more favorable.

N'any case, good luck!
