Panama to Key West: Best Delivery Route?

After the 2006 hurricane season, I'm making a direct "delivery type" passage from San Diego to Jax FL. Other than Panama, I plan to stop only in Key West, or maybe Cayman. I'm assuming the best route is via the Yucatan Channel, and not the Windward Passage on the eastern side of Cuba. I have a 48 foot steel pilothouse cutter that can handle the Caribbean in winter, but I'd prefer not to bash to windward to get to and through the Windward Passage.

Has anybody here made this passage? Any thoughts or suggestions?
