we've finally made it into full cruising mode. We crossed the Atlantic in late December - quite a memorable experience for the two of us. Now we're working our way up the Caribbean
chain towards the US. And the more I try to figure out the DomRep to Florida
part the more confused I get. Hence my questions:
I bought a book showing Bahama harbors etc, but it does not give me any idea on how I go about getting there. Cornell has some recommendations, but I am still not clear. Can you only sail on the deep portions, i.e. mostly to windward, or can you also pass on the shallow side (our draught being about 1.35 m)?
Which paper chart would you recommend? I always want to have a non-electronic backup.
Timing - we want to be close enough to 30įN by the end of May. Is there a recommended time for doing this part of our journey?
Any serious answers will be appreciated - with greetings from Guadeloupe
