But Nassau is the most efficient place to check in. Now as far as arranging flights to coincide with weather windows... Pay more for the ticket and buy at the last minute in and out of Nassau. Then do just the northern Exumas
. Or if you really want to save time, keep going around the west end of Nassau and check in at Stainel Cay with the girls joining you there. That could be two nights depending on boat speed.
Thanks Dave, this is exactly the route
that I was thinking of taking. Then probably meeting the girls in Nassau. We would then sail for 10 days or so down the exumas
back to Nassau to drop the girls off.
Would you recomend sailing back to Nassau, or just sailing south and send them back from say Georgetown
? Then sail from Georgetown
back to the Keys. If we did sail back from Georgetown what route would you recomend?
