Lake Worth to Abacos this week / buddy boat

Hello,

We will be crossing to the Abacos from Lake Worth on Wednesday or Thursday (April 25 or 26) if the forecast looks good.
If anyone else is going that and wants to buddy up, let me know...

Thanks!

Put out a call on VHF 16 to see if anyone in Lake Worth area is planning to cross. You can also canvass people by dinghy in the south anchorage. Not many people go to the Abacos from USA at this time of year. The general migration is the other way.

Thanks. I'm just trying to ask ahead as we are coming down from Stuart and will hopefully only be in LW for a quick stop.

I wonder if going against the migration will be like driving on the wrong side of the road...

Is this due to the start up of Hurricane season or some other issues?

Most cruisers go to the Bahamas for the winter and it's now time to head home for the summer. Also, many insurance policies require boats to be out of hurricane areas during hurricane season. A Bahamian cruising permit costs $150 for boats less than 35 feet and $300 for boats over 35 feet which is a fair chunk for a week or two.
