I've been thinking about moving this summer. I'm currently in the Tampa Bay area of FL, and was thinking about heading down to the Miami / Ft. Lauderdale area. With 180gallon of fuel capacity I could motor the whole way if the typically light summer winds never picked up enough to sail.
Lately, however, I've been considering other, more distant locations. Like CA. Other than sailing, I am big into rock-climbing and mountain biking. FL terrain does not exactly cater to this, and even though the waters are great this area has pretty lousy wind for moving about anything but my catamaran.
I would have to leave in the summer- early June to be exact, so I would have three months of paychecks coming in while I sail (I work for a school). If I treated this like a delivery run instead of a leisurely cruise, how long do you think it would take? What sort of weather should I expect in these areas at that time of year?
I am aware it's the start of the hurricane season...
