Easterly winds. Maybe a tad south of east.
You go on the west of St Barts and St Martin
East of Nevis
, St Kits, Monserat, Statia and Saba
Unles you are dropping into the islands... All island ports
are on the west coast
There is the chance of a hurricane
in July. You really, really, really need to be going direct, non stop from Antigua
to St Martin
. Any other islands have no protection in hurricanes.
Then if you wish to do St Barts you dont decide to go in until u have rechecked the weather
. That hurricane
last year appeared in a day. No one could avoid it and death aint a great feeling.
Others will tell you to drift around as you like, but really u can only go from firm base to firm base. Then any other islands you must be able to return within the same day. Fir example, st barts to st martin is 20 miles downwind so you can do that easily, but trying to get from Monserrat to Antigua 20 miles directly upwind in a storm againt current
may be impossible ...
