Re: Need a Bahamas Cruise Itinerary
RichH Has it right! The Abacos via Memory Rock then an easy nite sail to Great Sale Cey. When you awake you are in paradise! Don't go ashore as you need customs first,..
,just sail around to Green Turtle key. Do customs, then sail the Abacos...and don't miss the 7 mile beach at Treasure Cay. All the places he suggested are perfect!
+1 on the Abacos
Be sure to visit the Hope Town light house and eat some cracked conch.
BUT and it is a really big but
be very very aware of the weather. Is your boat insured? Do you have coverage for that area in hurricane season?
ALSO crossing the Gulf Stream on a fixed date is a mega carp shoot. If the wind in in the North and 15 to 20 or more you will take a real beating getting across. Most boats of your size will turn back after a short while.
Forget the extra dinghy gas. if you run low it is available.
