Hundreds of boats do it every year from MacGregor 26's to 100 foot yachts. Timing and weather is everything. If you jump off from Miami you'll be in good company. Many boats stage there and cross when windows occur. We usually go from Miami or lower Biscayne Bay and it usually takes us about 30 hours to get to Nassau where we check in. We then head south to the Exumas and beyond. In my view sailing in the Bahamas can't be beat. After the trek down the ICW it'll be a treat to drop your hook in waters where you can see it set or sail (or motor) across the Bank where you can see the conch (there's still conch there) on the bottom as you zip by.
