I'm not sure of gunkholing along the southern coast of Cuba, Hispanola, PR would be all that good. I would probably end up motoring all the way.
I would ( and have, but not in one go). just sail from Isla to Key West. Key west to Bimini. Bimini to Turks. Beat out 3 day's from Turks on a close reach motor sail. and head on down to St. John from there. No reason to cut through the lake IMO.
