Wow - that sounds like an awesome trip. I would give anything to sail with you Jack. One day maybe.

Have fun! I sailed a Leopard 47 from Gran Canaria to St David, Grenada a couple years back. Great trip and a solid boat. Got some big surfs under a gennaker. This cat had really low aspect rudders which were prone to over steering if you are used to high aspect rudders on mono hull racers. Wish I was going along with you!

Jack, which route will you be taking? Sounds like one Hell of a fantastic voyage.

Good Luck,

Gary :cool:
Billyruffin suggested going to 14N 77 30W before turning to Colon. I have that in mind. No chance to explore.

Um, yeah. This is "that time of year" in the Gulf, and for you in the Caribbean.

May this work out one way or the other, and give you the weather window you need.

Best wishes, be safe.

Best of luck Jack. Keep an eye on that system. Looks like it's about to develop into a TS. Hope you don't have a schedule.
