If you are averse to night sailing, be aware that the usual timing of the crossing to the Bahamas is to leave at about 2AM. The reason is that you want to arrive while the sun is high and glare is minimized. Remember all navigation is by eyeball. Navigation marks either do not exist or are not reliable. But your eyes are all you need if the sun is high.
