new to site, looking for info on eastward passage along southern coast of Hispanola

Hello everyone, I just joined this site and it looks real cool. I found it because I was looking for info on sailing east along the southern coast of Hispanola in February of next year. Doing a delivery from Montego Bay to Ponce PR, anyone got any advice?

I've never done that particular route, but welcome to Cruisers Forum, Brian. I'll bet someone will have some advice for you.

Should be easy, southern side of Islands tend to be smoother but Mona Pass can get bumpy. Last March coming in from the Bahamas I pulled into Old San Juan P.R. and it was nasty coming in, If it werent for fuel I would have continued to St. Croix and not got stuck in the harbor waiting for smoother weather (9 days) to finish the trip, Good Luck and smooth sailing.
