We are sailing from Havana to the Exumas
and have some different ways to choose between. Our draft
is 2.20 meters or 6,8 feet so maybe it might be a bit tricky to sail over the Great Bahama Bank.
1 is to sail to the Bahama Bank south of Andros Island where we cross over a depth
of 4-6 meters and then sail across the Tongue of the ocean on open water
and further on to Exuma Chain and cross through Dotham Cut north of Black Point. Then sail on open water
down to Great Exuma.
2 would be to sail with the Gulf stream
North East and then cross over the Bahama bank South of Bimini
and Cat Cay towards the North West Channel Beacon. Then sail down to Nassau
and continue S-outh by Porgee Rock and sail across the Yellow bank down to Exuma Chain.
Any thoughts on these two suggestions or with experience of crossing the Great Bahama Bank with a deeper draft
