How about the other way??

We plan to go east from Rockport (near Port Aransas) to the Keys and on to the Bahamas ..... don't really want to sail the "ditch" all the way. Is there a best time to go, with the usual trades? Hug the coast, or take the rhumbline straight across? We'd rather sail outside on the coast. Guess we could wait for a Norther .... ? Any thoughts or experiences?

Thanks,
