Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

I missed out on the ad nauseum debate. Au contraire as to any jealousy toward Minnewaska, I say more power to him. And while I agree that climbing aboard other people's boats is not cool, I sense in those kids a certain joie de vivre which we definitely need more of in this life. And yes, even though I am almost 60 and decidedly not a 1%'er, through hard work and some amount of good fortune, I find myself quite comfortably retired. But I did grow up in the 1960's and from that I find I can conjure up a goodly amount of admiration for those who do things on a shoestring, though anyone who does anything out of the mainstream is to be admired.
