Planning for weather in the Gulf Stream and on the Little Bahama Bank is much easier if you A. live and work there — or B. you have access to the myriad of weather sources available today.
The image above is our assessment of information based on our experiences last year, online resources, and weather guru. While there are micro and meso forecasts available from private services, we feel better informed for having done the work ourselves.
Last year we found ourselves holed up at Great Sale for a day shy of a week. This year, Old Bahama Bay Marina at West End has a February Special that will make a week there cheaper than most waterway outfits. So this time, we will hole up there. If all goes well, this will also allow us to use the Indian Cay Channel to access the Bank this year.
