Umm... Coming from the Bahamas or Key West isn't a great idea IMHO. A NE wind against a SE or S current is a bad idea. You'll be heading against the Antilles current and the northern equatorial current for most of the of the passage.

If you cut south and then head east along the northern coast of South America, you go through some of the most dangerous areas with regards to pirate attacks in the Western Hemisphere. However, the sailing should be far easier than dealing with a contrary current with winds in opposition.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If the reason for going to VN is yard work, check out the yards in Chaguaramas. Reasonably priced and a lot safer.

loxegwen is on a distinguished road
I was hoping to sail to Belize from Galveston myself in the late spring early summer in my Seidelmann 25. How long would you think it would take to get there?
