    ( had to send in two parts. Overran the word count) If you are in a hurry, you dont HAVE to stop along the way. But its nice sailing IMHO inside the reef as there is more sealife, birdlife, landmarks and things to steal your thoughts away so to speak. Also the reef is a huge swell blocker. So the wave heights are smaller inside as the fetch is minimal compared to the pacific side of the reef.Yes you're right about head winds. The S/E trades will be starting again as S/H winter approaches. So it will be on the nose. Which, considering what I said about wave height, may make inside a better choice if you need to motor into it to make time.

    Stay in touch, I would love to hear more about your trip. What sort of boat? Time frame? Regards Dave
