Which way out?

Ahoy, seriously a friend called me and wanted to know if I had any advice on the best route from Jamaica to Florida. He himself is not much of a sailor and maybe a crew member on a friends 40 to 45 foot sailboat. This friend told him there are two options of starting off on a very westerly route to take the Tradewinds or more direct North route to catch the Gulfstream.

I am a very decent small boat sailor but no kind of Bluewater Capt.. Of course my first reaction is if they have to asked me they might have more serious concerns than the best route. If this trip will take place they know they need one or two very able Seaman to go with them.

They are not any type of smugglers but the reason he might be leaving is a very colorful one in the Jamaican tradition.

Does anyone have any experience or say in the matter of this two direction option from Jamaica to Florida and which would be preferable this time of year? The foolish man waits my input. I don't think you'll be liable for any advice. Also do think there is there a better category at this forum that I should post this request? Thank you kindly, Tim
