We started in Key West
and island-hopped south of Andros, then Exumas
, then Great Inagua. This worked well for us - and if we wouldn't have been pushing up against hurricane
season, we would have liked to spend more time "hopping" between Exumas and Great Inagua, as skipmac suggests. In Great Inagua you can wait for good weather
and zip through the Windward Passage in a flash, easy-peasy. Then we turned East and slogged our way to Ile a Vache, Haiti
. NOT easy-peasy: but worth the trouble, for sure.
