we did it a few years ago - we left from the San Blas and did a sail to the north side of Jamaica and went in at Bloody Bay - great stop - can't check in there but when the police came out to check on us we told them we sailed across and asked if we could go ashore and they told us to enjoy ourselves - we then sailed up the north side of Jamaica - tip on that - leave at dawn and be in before noon -
it is easy and we were less experienced than we are now but it is a good run - we used chris parker for wx and waited for the right wx window to go

if you have ais it will get a work out in some of the areas approaching Jamaica -

just our thoughts and opinions
