Florida to Grand Cayman?

Hi, we are new to this site and are finding it fascinating to read all the forum postings. We have lived aboard our 55 foot trawler for 10 years in Ontario Canada and we are finally retired and on our way south. Currently in Portsmouth Virginia. We want to go from Florida to Grand Cayman and wondered if others had ever made this trip. Is it best to go to Cuba first then to the Cayman's or is the Yucatan a better route? Anxious to hear any tips, advice, suggestions etc.

Re: Florida to Grand Cayman?

Very easy trip from Florida to Caymans. Cross to marina hemingway, Cruise west to Cabo San Antonio with easterly wind and west going counter current.
Round the cape and go north side of Juventude. Come out through Rosario than to Cayo Largo. Continue on to Ceinfuego and than 135 miles to Caymans.

Where are you in Florida? We plan to anchor somewhere on southwest side after exiting the ICW. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for this info. Can you recommend charts for the whole trip and where to get them? Know of anyone else planning this trip for the spring?
