Routing Galveston to Miami

In Florida, northers show up as westerly winds rotating clockwise to north and east. How fast it rotates is how strong the front = strong. I''d pick up the westerlies and sail south as it rotates. It can blow hard in Feb and the gulf gets plenty rough due to shallow depths. There are many ships going and coming from New Orleans so beware of ship traffic down to the Florida Straights.
