The wind is right. You can sail away and find serenity. Sailing, fishing, wake boarding, kite boarding, etc. it is all year round in south Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean and beyond. I really enjoyed the Canary Islands as much as anywhere in the world that I have ever been. The wind is always steady, 15 – 25mph the temperature is perfect all year; “the land of eternal spring.” The waves are cranking somewhere close by and fish are always biting the right bait. LOL

It is time to head south and catch the big Yellow Fin Tuna, hook up to the moorings on Sombrero Reef, cross the pond and cruise the Great Bahamas Bank. Take to the thornless path and on to dominican Republic. If you ever leave there it’s okay there is more to paradise than the Dominican.

Before you head off into paradise you really should hang in south Florida for a while.

Ft. Lauderdale Beach is so fun and the mooring field there is really very reasonable at only $30 a night and right across the Intracoastal waterway from the Fort Lauderdale Beach. Then you must hang in both Miami Beach and Coconut Grove for a while. Play some golf and at least provision the boat at Costco south of Aventura before heading on to the Keys. You can practically pull your yacht right up to the parking lot of Costco the in north Miami.

Head on down and do some fishing and diving on your way to Boot Key Harbor, Marathon or Garrison Bight, Key West to wait for the south wind to flatten the Gulf Stream then jump off at sunset. You will sight the Bahamas around sunrise and your days in paradise will be slow and relaxed.

South Florida is the place to start and now the best moorings, anchorages and shops to provision are all accessible in south Florida. Most of the mooring fields have wifi and most have a launch and pump out service from Dinner Key Marina to Garrison Bight, Key West.

The ocean is our playground and the earth is our classroom. ha lel u YaH !!

Fair winds and following seas, and keep the lines tight mates.
