I'm going over July 10th (weather permitting) and staying at Rosie's for three nights before heading down to Guana.

I don't know who Max is, but I'm happy to help if I can.

planning on Fort Worth / sailfish to Spanish morning of 6/7. We’re a flight of 2. What boat / what time do you expect to arrive Spanish? WX looks good so far...

Any new updates with West End/ OBB?

i’m starting to plan my trip of moving my big boat back from the Abacos before the hurricane season gets into full swing.

West end obviously makes A good jumping off point early in the morning. My other option would be to overnight on great sale and then hit the stream first light.

Having a really hard time getting ahold of anyone in Grand Cay for at least a hope of a room, anyone have a current number for someone on the island? even the phone on Rosies website is out of service.

FTP to clear in Spanish on 7/11.
Havent done the trip from Ft. Pierce before but seems like lots of folks like it better and only 20-30 miles further versus Palm Beach, that and other reasons gonna give it a shot.
Looks like a couple different choices of routing, one south of Propellor rocks then up from there, or hug the northern part and route above Great Sale into Spanish.
Anyone have any preferences? Boat is a 33 BW outrage.

I've found most folks on Grand would rather communicate via app (Whatsap). Max number is 242-439-2045

Final post on departure, planning on leaving June 8th from Stuart to Elbow by way of Spanish for check-in. Love to have a boat buddy if anyone else is close. Also, any advice on what constitutes "too windy" for this run? West coast we can handle 18 plus knots offshore no problem, but this is a first cross for us and we have a few 12 year old kids on the boat. Any thoughts appreciated. Teal 32 contender we are at Sea Spray if you wanna grab a beer. Chris

From Fort Pierce pretty much a straight shot to just north of Little Sale then follow the charts to Spanish. If you have Navionics app you can do auto route to get a general idea but still rely on actual numbers from chart. Dodge Guide has all the numbers you need. We are heading out of Fort Pierce on June 16th clearing at Spanish or GTC

chris,
We are leaving Jupiter the same day, the weather looks great. I went in may last year small craft advisory in a 26 regulator, that was 14 hrs to GTC. So you should do 40mph in a 32 CNTDR this year especially on the bank...
