Crossing over from West End Grand Bahamas to Florida

Post  CLeVesque on Tue Aug 05, 2008 6:11 pm

Interested to know if anyone has sailed over recently from the West End of Grand Bahamas to Florida. We are not sure of the most expeditious route. Our final destination will be Ft. Lauderdale. We are thinking of going southwest until the current get's too strong (hopefully we'll have some wind in our sails) and then head northwest. Then take the intercoastal down from either Jupiter or West Palm Beach. If anyone has done this "crossing" recently, if you could share some advice regarding the current and winds that would be great. Also, if there is a resource that could provide the current and forecasted winds and currents online, it might be a good idea to look at that before we leave.

Thanks

I wish I could help but we cruise under power (although we go allot slower than we used to). I've done the West End - Lighthouse Point run may times.

Hope you get a reply, this forum is kinda slow.
