Gordon - Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the best jumpoff for 
Bermuda near Fort Lauderdale, giving you the shortest crossing of the 
also, if you're headed for the Caribbean ultimately, why not take the 
ICW the first time out and minimize your outside travel? That way, 
you can adapt to new conditions and minimize any risk since you'll 
always be close to a harbour. Save Bermuda till later, or jump off 
from further south.
Plus, there are lots of guides, etc. for the Ditch, making your 
initial voyage a lot easier. Another advantage - if you're 
singlehanding, and I assume you are, you get to sleep safely each 
night at anchor.
