Abaco or Exumas over Thanksgiving advice needed

We are considering chartering in the Bahamas this year in late November.
What is the scoop on Abaco vs Exumas?

Re: Abaco or Exumas over Thanksgiving advice needed

Abacos is more protected especially from a west wind event and more populated than the Wxumas. The Exumas is more "wild" and more about the water and beachs. I don't even know where you would start a charter at for the Eumas. But the problem is you are on a schedule and have to get back to the starting location.

So if you just want to sail it doesn't matter. If you want short sails to a new protected spot each day where you can get back to turn in the boat then start at Marsh Harbor.

But I type this from Marsh Harbor having not been off the boat in 48 hours as the wind blows 30+
It is OK if others want to do it different on THEIR boat ....................... sometimes!
