Re: Going from Antigua to US-need good reads
Headed from Antigua to Buffalo, NY. We are not going to take a direct line from the islands to say Beaufort NC. So we are looking for info about sailing west and north from Antigua to Tortola to PR
to Bahamas to FL. The start of the trip will be determined by weather, when the boat is fully prepped, and when we decide all the planets have lined up.
OK Antigua to Florida. A great trip almost all of it off the wind. Get your spi or cruising chute checked out. I would skip the DR and do Boqueron PR
to Salt Cay T&C but Luperon has it's attractions just be VERY careful of the entrance.
Like I said get Van Sants book, http://www.amazon.com/Gentlemans-Guide-Passages-South-Thornless/dp/1470146967/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1341690540&sr=1-3&keywords=bruce+van+sant
If you are in Antigua Lord Jims Locker will almost certainly have it in stock.
