Chesapeake to BVI Spring Trip

Hello, I am looking to sail down to BVI in late March or early April. I sailed back from BVI in April 2009 - 43' Beneatu to Jacksonville, then off shore to Mooreshead, NC, up ICW - final docking National Harbor, MD. Great trip!

Reason for my post: looking for feedback/Route suggestions for heading down in late March or early April? Return - early May.

From the safe water buoy outside Chesapeake Bay head SE (wind permitting) until you get to 65W. Turn right and you'll bisect Tortola. Should be 10 days or so on your boat.

I'll be leaving from Vinings Landing Marina in Little Creek VA in late March.
