Sarasota to Cayo Costa

Hi All, Im planning a 6 day trip from Sarasota Bay to Venice and hopefully on to Cayo Costa Island. I will be sailing my Compac 23 so weather and conditions will be the largest factor.
Any input from experienced west coast sailors will be appreciated!

It's an easy trip and a great time of the year. Enjoy! The ranger station near the dock in Pelican Bay at Cayo Costa does sell ice.

check out SV Hideaway on Youtube. He sails that area in the same boat.

Re: Sarasota to Cayo Costa

Make sure you have a good weather window. Right now it sucks for southbound.

Read Active Captain for the entrance to Pelican Bay.

It's a great trip!
