Most of the charter
companies are in the Abacos. Sunsail and Moorings have a base in Marsh Harbour. I've used the Moorings there several times in the winter. http://www.moorings.com
February in the Abacos is much like southern Florida
. It's often nice, but a lot of cold fronts roll through that time of the year, so it can be windy, light jacket weather
. The islands are low, so you most always feel the wind
, but most of the sailing is in the relatively protected Sea of Abaco
which keeps wave action way down. The navigation
is fairly straight forward. I like that there is a nice mix of resorts, small towns and uninhabited islands.
I personally really like sailing the Abacos in winter, but if you are looking for reliably warm weather and more milder cold fronts, I recommend a Caribbean destination
Most of the images
on my webpage were taken last February or early March.
