How would you compare the Mona Passage to the Straits of Yucatan ?
All the best,
The Mona can be worse or usually is. The Yucatan you're dealing with waves usually from the South or one direction. Mona it's more of a washing machine. I've crossed it though and it's been 2ft or less in the early mornings a couple of times.
I've never run the south side of Puerto Rico, but to get there you'd have to go South through the Mona Passage to get there with more time in the passage, unless you go around Haiti and that's a whole nother story. You can run the West side of the BVI's from the eastern side of PR. The eastern side of PR can be very rough if you're heading south to St. Croix.
