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.

No worries... I fat-finger it all the time..but have built-in spell check..

What kind of boat are you going to be making the trip in? Also, exactly when were you thinking of leaving... from what port, to what port... and I'll see what I can dig up for weather info for ya.

If you can afford a little bit of $$ and have an SSB...Chris Parker gives superb weather and routing advice as he is both an accomplished cruiser AND a great weather man! You can find out about his services at www.caribwx.com and clicking the "offerings" link.
If you can't afford the service...you can still listen in on the SSB and hope that the general forcasts cover precisely where you are. We used both his E-mail and SSB service for over a year and always felt it was money well spent as he was so much more precise than NOAA.
Here's more weather stuff for the Caribbean available on SSB:
