Where to sail on Fla''''s East Coast...
Bob, Sounds to me like you are asking about South Florida,Lake Worth Inlet and below.
Lake Worth is a standard "jumping off" point for a crossing, but starting further south works quite well also. Hawks channel along the keys is very enjoyable sailing and if you take your time, you can even hit a few dive spots. We have snuggled in the lee of Rodriguez Key enroute to the Bahamas, entering the banks at Gun & Cat Cay, an easy trip if you wait for a weather window. You can find plenty of anchorages in and around Biscayne Bay just below Miami if you are heading up that way. Hopes this helps a little. Tom
