Cool From Annapolis heading south

We are taking our O'Day 35 south from Annapolis,MD on October 2nd. We plan to do the ICW to Beaufort, NC and then go outside to Charleston. We will continue on to Datona going outside when possible, if not, down the ICW. We plan to stay in Daytona until mid January, then move south to West Palm Beach to jump over to the Bahamas from March 1st to mid April. We plan on staying in the Abacos until heading north back to Maryland. Since this is our first long trip I would appreciate any suggestions from thost that have done the trip.

If you find yourself waiting at Lake Worth Inlet (WPB) due to weather; then consider taking the ICW down to anchor in Lake Sylvia in Fort Lauderdale before crossing to West End. The distance is a little more, but the advantage in current and likely wind direction makes for a more pleasant crossing of the Gulfstream. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

You might find the following a good resource: Cruiser's Net

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
