Next get a copy of the "Explorer Charts" for the Bahamas. You only need the books for the Near Bahamas which covers the Exumas and Far Bahamas with covers Great Inagua.
- - Then plot on all your charts your route from Brunswick to Miami and then from Miami to the Bahamas and Great Inagua.
- - From Great Inagua it is an easy route south to Port Antonio, Jamaica. The same from Port Antonio, Jamaica to Cartagena.

Great - but be warned this is the time of year that the waters between Jamaica and Columbia start to get bigger and the winds start to howl. Currently it is not too bad with 8 ft seas and 20-25kts from the east. But Low pressure areas are forming just off Columbia near Panama and we are seeing some days with 25-35 kt winds from the east and 10 ft (3 meter) seas. This area gets more active as the summer progresses.
- - Currently this week winds and waves from Florida to Jamaica have been extra low and winds very light - seas 1 to 3 ft (<1 meter) and 10-15 kt winds from all over the compass. So you might just be motoring across the Gulf Stream and through the Bahamas.
- - If you wanted to avoid this area between Jamaica and Columbia you might consider working your way east to Puerto Rico and then heading south to the A.B.C. (Aruba; Bonaire; Curacao) islands and then turn west along the South American coastline to Cartagena.

Thanks a lot for info. I know very well the Colombian and Venezuelan coasts, i sailed seven years ago in that area, and indeed i don't like this sea section, i prefer arrive in Cartagena from Jamaica (180 course mas o menos).
