Ft. Lauderdale to Annapolis in late April
I''d appreciate some suggestions on sailing from Ft. Lauderdale to Annapolis in a 1992 Catalina 42. I''d like to try to do the trip in 2 weeks, leaving around the third week in April. At first blush, I figured I''d leave Ft. Lauderdale and stop off at Grand Bahama Island for a day or two. Then head up the coast for either Charleston or Beaufort. Duck in the ditch and motor up to Norfolk, etc. Anyone have any suggestions or "gotchas" for a person who hasn''t done this trip before? My experience is in San Francisco Bay and the California coast. In general, what kind of conditions can I expect along the way? Can anyone suggest a particular chart book or cruising guide that would be helpful?
Thanks in advance.
