Cruising in Western Florida
 
<HTML><!-- eWebEditPro 1.8.0.2 --><P>I am going cruising in West Florida for a week. Is there any way I can prepare myself for this cruise and come up with a suggested itinerary? And how can I find out about average winds and weather over there?</P><P>Alex</P><P><STRONG>Sue and Larry respond:</STRONG></P><P>Having only cruised briefly on the West Coast of Florida, we don't really feel we are the best source for the perfect itinerary. We would, however, recommend you get a copy of Claiborne Young's <I><A href="http://www.sailnet.com/store/search.cfm?searchterm=Claiborne+">Cruising Guide to Western Florida</A></I>. Also, if this is a charter boat you are using, the charter company likely has a recommended route. Don't try to go too far in just a week. This can often bring too many pressures of deadlines to get back on time. There's a lot to see close to Tampa Bay.</P><P>Don't worry about the weather. April is nice everywhere in Florida. If you really want specifics though, I'm sure Tampa has a website that would answer your questions, and the above guidebook might cover that.</P><P>Best Regards,<BR>Sue &amp; Larry</P></HTML>
