We usually cross before a front and the front usually hits us on the bank. This time the winds before the front were very strong, a very mild front and then the winds stayed NW rather than clocking more so we crossed after the front. An enjoyable trip. Warm and sunny in Nassau.
Rick, did you go NW Providence Channel and essentially run "offshore" the whole way from Florida to Nassau (seems like that's what you did), or did you to go Bimini, check in, and then run across the bank? We're a few years out from this trip, but already are route planning.
