Hi Guys,

The weather for the next few days is really interesting to see for the I65 route from Florida, and north, down to the Caribbean.

Have a look at and see the way the Trade Winds have begun in earnest in the Caribbean.
Today from cape Hatteras south it looks like nice easterly winds... But, waring! Look at Monday (tomorrow) and Tuesday and see southerlies and then a short but nasty northerly.
Then see how, if you left at the right time on Wednesday morning as the wind is swinging through the North to the North east you would get a nice out to 65W where you then point south to your destination. (Remember North against Gulf Stream isnt good, so u have to work it carefully)

Even if you are not going on this trip for a few years have a look at this weeks weather and see how it can work for you.
