Caya Largo, Cuba to Grand Cayman

Hi all

Interested in any advice, help, info on sailing this in Jan. / Feb. Is this doable as far as picking a weather window for the distance?
From there we are interested in going from Cayman to Honduras. Please give any feedback on this plan.

Should be a fairly straightforward overnight sail on a beam reach in prevailing winds, depending on your boat.

Re: Caya Largo, Cuba to Grand Cayman

We are in a 33ft Fales Navigator. We go by engine with a sail assist. She is a little workhorse, but we try to go by weather. We have been caught in undesirable seas and experienced squalls. Nothing life threatening. We have no interest in taking chances. What about the leg to Honduras??
