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,
Amazon.com: The Gentleman's Guide to Passages South: The Thornless Path to Windward (Volume 10) (9781470146962): Mr. Bruce Van Sant: Books Amazon.com: The Gentleman's Guide to Passages South: The Thornless Path to Windward (Volume 10) (9781470146962): Mr. Bruce Van Sant: Books



If you are in Antigua Lord Jims Locker will almost certainly have it in stock.
