I did the search and nothing pops up. I retire next July...not pertinent. I have a trailerable 30 foot Condor trimaran
and a 1 ton dually Chevy diesel
One of the plans i am entertaining is to drive down to San Carlos Mexico
and pick my boat
up sometime in November of 2019. Drive to Florida
, assemble, launch, and store my trailer
and truck at someplace like the Finnish Line in Stuart. Sail down to the Keys, cross over to the Bahamas
south from there. I would like to get down to the southern coast of Cuba
. Cross over to the Caymans and then on to Belize
and do the atolls off shore. Then on to Cancun
. Then to Galveston and catch a flight back to Lauderdale and pick up truck and trailer
Maps, right click, and then measure distance option....Looks like about 200 miles from Manzanillo, Cuba
to Little Cayman. Anyone been to Manzanillo? How is provisioning
? I think i will be pretty depleted for food
after a month on the south side of Cuba. Looks like a nice down hill run from Manzanillo to Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. Anyone got something to say about Blossum Village on Little Cayman?
2. Then onto Georgetown
on Grand Cayman. Clean her up a bit and more food stores and repairs
. Is food provisioning
crazy expensive on G. Cayman?
3. Leg three...Grand Cayman to the atolls off of Belize
. Do I have to sail over to the mainland and check in before visiting Turneffe atoll and Light House Cay? Watched an excellent video posted up by Sailing Project
Atticus on the atoll. Good kids
. All downhill sailing so far? About 200 miles.
4. Belize to Cancun
...260 miles of beam reaching. Anyone sailed Banco Chinchorro area on your way north to Cancun? Looks like there are plenty of places to hide if weather
goes nasty? Any recommendations for sailing guides to this area? I love a good guide.
5.Cancun to Texas
...here is where i get a little dazzled by the winds. If i follow the prevailing winds it looks like i have mostly a downhill sail till i get closer to the Texas
coast where the winds back to the west due to continental land mass. Looks like if i head
NNW when the winds switch westward i can sail some sort of reach over to Galveston. Any and all advice dearly appreciated. I am calculating about 750 miles for this final leg.
Is this plan doable? I want to leave Stuart, Florida
around mid November and be in Galveston around May.
