Re: Key West to Bimini (Direct)?

Alright, sounds great, thanks for the replies. I was sort of counting on the seasonally light winds, and figured if I could motor at 7 knots plus the kick from the current, I could make this a relatively quick jump.

Melrna, that route was one that someone else used to get to the Exumas, I'm trying to get a little farther north, so hopfully I'll be able to kill the engine as I'm passing Marathon as you mentioned. And I don't sail on ANY long trips like this without a lure in the water!!

Hylyte, thanks for the suggestion on the layover. I think I'll shoot for something like that if I don't get a good weather window.
