Grand can be a little tricky but not too bad. If you haven't, get a copy of Steve Dodge's Cruising Abaco Guide, very helpful info. there.

Just did the same run to Green Turtle. Only thing I did different from the Dodge Guide was entered at White sands and ran across. Looking at my Garmin chart it showed a shoal and some rocks along the path. The Garmin charts have some built in course lines in them and I diverted around the area by following a couple of those as they intersected my path just before the shoaly area. Other than that it is pretty easy.
