Next year I plan on taking my sailboat down the ICW
from near Annapolis
to Amelia Island Florida
. The best time of year to make the transit is my basic question. My first option or best choice was to depart the weekend following labor day in September to make the transit. This date is contingent upon when my house sells. My question is.....
What are the best months to transit south? More specifically, other that hot weather
, any issue with going south in June vice September (house possibly sold)?
Boat stats... 31ft Sloop
, 4.5 ft draft
, 45 ft bridge clearance. Basic rough voyage plan: ICW
to Cape Fear, go outside from Cape Fear to Chasn , overnight Chasn, then back outside from Chasn to Amelia Island. Outside plans contingent upon weather/wind.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
