Which route to the Virgins?
OK, it is starting to get to the time to make more specific plans rather than more general ones. We are going to the Caribbean for the winter with our first destination likely in the American Virgin Islands. We will be leaving in early November and a significant question is whether we should leave from the Chesapeake or from somewhere further south like Beaufort or Morehead City? I guess the fundamental question is whether there is a significant advantage to going a bit further south in the ICW before heading off to 65?
The boat is a Bristol 45.5 (draft just under 5' with board up) with full equipment and an experienced crew of 4 or 5 people. Thanks for your comments.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
