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

Not sure if (1) and earlier reply got posted or didn't make it through, (2) how old this thread is and (3) if you are still looking for advice.

I cannot give you personal experience, but can direct you to a publication by Skipper Bob (link below) that deals quite extensively with your major challenge (if you limit yourself to the Bahamas for now), which is crossing the Gulf Stream. Perhaps that got covered quite well in other replies, but I admit I have not read through all the pages of response to your thread. Good luck with your plan!
