If it were me I would be out the inlet at 0500 and gone.

Stop at West End if you want, or pass Memory Rock and keep on going to Great Sale or Green Turtle Cay.

If you are thinking of waiting for a better weather forecast than that, you'll be waiting a long, long, LONG time.

Second that! And bypass West End, use that SW wind to push you past Great Sale and clear in at Spanish Cay

Concur with "flyingfin" and Great Sale is a good stopping point if you need the rest.

Get out of here....canít get much nicer.
But....make sure you look out the window before you leave. Canít just stare at chartplotters and computer screens.

I can tell you that right now, today in the Abacoís the wind is much more than forecasted, so listen to the forecast, but also look out the window

I use the free program passage weather for the forecasting (seas are in meters). I usually leave Lake Worth around midnight and head for Great Sale then check-in at Green Turtle (Bluff House). On the return leave from West End and head back to Florida Coast.
