To Bermuda in the Spring ?

Any opinions as to what the sailing conditions would be like, sailing from the Caribbean to Bermuda in march? And how about anchoring? or is it all v expensive marinas? Any experiences gratefully received! The boat's in Curacao now and we plan to head off at the end of the year at a leisurely pace.

In April you would be part of the fleet of hudreds that stop thru here on their way North and East.
Very few marinas, anchor just about anywhere for free. We are pretty laid back about that.

Initial stay 90 days from arrival date. Extension not difficult for legit reasons, like impending hurricanes, repairs,etc. Easy access to all services and provisions.
I recently went into more detail on this in another thread. Advanced Search should bring it up quickly.

Right, still a bit early. April/May gets better.
