wind direction & jetstream question

I have been preparing my watkins 27 sailboat to cruise to the USVI from Maryland,
however I am not sure about the prevailing wind direction at diferent times of year after leaving Ft Lauderdale, Fl. I understand dec-may is the best time to be safe from hurricanes however doesn't the wind & jetstream typically head one direction part of the year and the other the rest? If anyone knows these answers or where I should research please help!
